Cristiani - Wallace Bros Circus. ‘Every Act a Feature’
In connection with New Project, I had the opportunity to help build and paint the stages and cases used to display the instruments for the exhibit ‘Play it Loud’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
”The exhibition is co-organized with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and will present approximately 130 instruments alongside posters and costumes. Many of rock's most celebrated and recognized instruments will be featured, representing artists across generations and subgenres. In addition to institutional and private collectors, many musicians are lending their performance and recording instruments.”
Now on display from April 8 - October 1, 2019.
I was lucky enough to speak to Max Cavalera at the opening reception about his music. (His guitar is included in the collection) A BIG FAN of his work… I had so many questions that I wanted to ask that I can only remember now in retrospect. Haha, hopefully I didn’t make too big of a fool of myself.

“1 Day Only!”
In connection with the company New Project, I painted aspects of the ‘Hudson Rising’ exhibition now on display at the NY Historical Society in Manhattan. The exhibition runs March 1 - August 4, 2019.
A lot of the displays ended up being covered in vinyl but they were painted initially.
The rocks and boulders were carved/painted at the New Project studio in Brooklyn.
”Hudson Rising explores 200 years of ecological change and environmental activism along “the most interesting river in America” through artifacts, media, and celebrated Hudson River School paintings. The exhibition reflects on how human activity has impacted the river and, in turn, how the river environment has shaped industrial development, commerce, tourism, and environmental awareness. The exhibition also explores how experts in various fields are currently creating ways to restore and re-engineer areas of the river in response to climate change.”
