Final Days of Professor Mack's "Posthaste Perennial Pattern" in NYC Times Square

Every night through the month of September, Professor Jodie Mack's Posthaste Perennial Pattern has been featured as part of the Times Square Arts Alliance's wonderful program Midnight Moment.  Posthaste Perennial Pattern fuses synthetic floral fabrics in a stop-motion animation that pulsates as if capturing a garden in bloom within a single moment.  The Museum of Modern Design describes Posthaste as a "response to Miriam Schapiro's 1973–74 collage-painting, The Beauty of Summer. Schapiro, a pioneering feminist artist, championed and referenced women’s domestic arts and crafts in her work, and her approach to everyday material continues to inspire artists today."

Read more about Miriam Schapiro's exhibtion "Surface/Depth" at the MAD page, and also about Professor Mack's contribution to the exhibit in our page of March 23rd.
