We are back in New Mexico after 21 straight days of intensive, non-stop travel and filming but I still have so much to tell you about the people and places we visited in Oklahoma and then will also be 'grabbing' stills from Bob's footage for future blogs about our sometimes very challenging process in the making of this documentary and also my installation for the show at the Mabee- Gerrer Museum of Art as it enfolds. The documentary will premiere at the museum in Fall 2011 and a show of my installation and the work of other creative individuals we interviewed will be at the museum in Fall 2012. Our deep thanks to the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art for their sponsorship and also to the Museum of the Red River for lodging and feeding us while we were in Idabel. More on both of these museums and their collections in future blogs.
But now.....our final stop in our trip to hear about an innovative gardening program for youth and a community garden that has saved and brought together an urban neighborhood that was in decline in Oklahoma City brought together all of the ideas and concepts we are trying to promote in our Creative-Native Project series. It was a gratifying and inspirational end to our shooting schedule.
