It looks good. It has been designed to look good. The floors are perfect for cleaning up after busy workshops…
The patch bays between rooms for tech hookups and communications are done. The sound proofing in the music room is done…
The industrial plugin is in for the kilns. The plumbing for the big sinks for washing up is installed…
For those of you who have been following this exciting developing cultural spaces building…what now…not much. Apparently nothing done well is done quickly. And that statement is not applicable to this building in any way. There have been some flaws, a few errors in construction.
We get disheartened. Just this week we had to tell an artist her exhibit planned in 2013 for August 2014 would not be possible. Heartbreaking news for any artist…and family that have planned time in the Rockies to celebrate the completion and exhibition of a new body of work.
The process of dreaming up a cultural space and programs for engaging as many people as we can is unshakable though. As we stand in the incomplete facility we can almost hear the chatter and music that will happen there soon.
The studio space for independent study or resident instructors sits eerily quiet for now…but we can almost hear the guitar lessons – we can almost envision the author pulling the doors closed so they can work in solitude on their writing.
So while the tarps blowing in the wind may be the only sound at the end of the day still…we dream. Because without out dreams we would be looking for a certain building contractor to hang in the elevator shaft! KIDDING
As the sign says that is hanging over our desk… ‘Another failure! Success is imminent!’
See ya soon in this amazing space.
