My Dakota: S.D. Opening; New Yorker Photo Booth

June 1, 2012

Rebecca and I are very glad to be in Rapid City, South Dakota,  for the opening of her “My Dakota” exhibition at the Dahl Arts Center.   As one can see in these installation shots, Rebecca is echoing the form of the book through writing some of her text pieces directly on the wall.    

With this exhibition and book, Rebecca has managed to create something of poignant beauty and poetic resonance out of a family tragedy ––  her brother’s untimely death.  So this opening is particularly special because Rebecca’s father and mother, aged 92 and 85, are coming to the opening.

Also a nice coincidence: the New Yorker Photo Booth blog,  is running a piece on Rebecca’s book today.––Alex Webb
