Anti M's Home for Wayward Art

Post by AntiM » Mon May 21, 2018 7:13 am

Here we go again! I know, I'm using last year's post. We are not recruiting, as I may have found our burgin for the year. Sometimes we even keep them ...

This will be our 17th 18th year on the playa, 12th 13th year of the Home. We are a daytime art gallery, where you can adopt a piece of art, and give it a new forever home. Each morning, I fill the Home with carefully chosen pieces, take a picture, and let it go. All the new "parents" need to do is read the instructions, fill out a small card and clip the card to the chickenwire. And love their art, of course! New this year, we built a library with all the cards from over the years for your reading pleasure. We are also bringing out our regional project, Poems of Unusual Size, with magnetic panels and large words for your inner poet's pleasure.

Where does the art come from? I paint a lot of original pictures, make collages, and comb thrift shops. So do my campmates, bringing photographs, mixed media, and woodblock prints. I have friends who no longer attend, some who are not even burners, who make art to gift. There are a number of talented contributors right here on eplaya, and I am grateful and proud to offer their works, and the amazing art they find in odd places. Random strangers bring art and leave it for others! It is a marvelous collaborative effort. I love the Home, I love the people who make it happen, and I love hanging out and chatting with people who are adopting art.

Established in 2005, Anti M's Home for Wayward Art is a place for small art, medium art, amateur art, but especially Bad Art, Lost Art, Found Art, Art which Needs a Good Spanking, and of course, Wayward Art. This is not a gallery, it is more like juvenile detention for art, an orphanage, a half-way house for misfit art. All art in the Home is up for adoption, all the prospective new parent needs to do is fill out a small adoption form and clip it to the Home in place of their newfound art darling. Art may also be committed to the Home, just put it securely in place and say good-bye.

Art may also be committed to the Home, just put it securely in place and say good-bye. If you have multiples of similar pieces, please bring them around to the shade structure. That way I can place them mixed in with the other art so one theme does not become overwhelming. While the emphasis is on visual art such as paintings, drawings and photos, other mediums such as small sculptural art are welcome. The Gifting Box is for even smaller items such as jewelry, swag and trinkets. Costumes, MOOP, food, and your abandoned sign too bulky to haul around are not within the parameters, thank you. If you are donating many items, do leave them in the back, in the shade structure with a note.

Why? I love to paint, I love to do miniatures, I love to give things away. Based on the concepts of art and gifting, I came up with the Home. Why Bad Art? While I am quite good at miniatures, I am not always pleased with my products. I also glean art from thrift stores and friends and family and yard sales. Some of the most fabulous donated pieces have been dumpster diving finds.

Super Duper! Would love to stop in, what is the address?
The answer may not be at Burning Man, but shouldn't we at least check :?:

Hushville hasn't been placed yet, but traditionally we are at 515 and E. The village will be on the map, I will be on the list of theme camps printed on the map. I am ridiculously easy to find.

Time to paint! And glue and modpodge and fiddle. I am only about 20% toward my goal of 500+ art pieces. Yikes. Anyone have art they need to rehome? This is the year!

You guys are my heroes! Every piece helps spread the love.

Hey, I never take the value of art for granted. I pulled a paint by numbers piece out of the trash, and a really nice couple adopted it. I found the a painting made from the same kit on ebay, and it sold for $215!!!! That was interesting.

I am sad to announce we will not be on the playa this year due to health reasons. See you in the dust next year!

Oh, I'm healed from the hernia surgery, although I look like a raptor got my belly. I'm fine. Larry has lung cancer. Well, fuck, huh?

A little good news. Rangers Genius and Rarity are going without us, but will have a modified version of the Home up and open for a couple days. Not sure which days, and the art is limited, but we will be there in spirit!
