We pulled off “painting in light” for somewhere around 400 kids at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this past Friday night, and although almost 48 hours have passed since we wrapped, hauling the last pieces of our “light booths” back to our office laboratory in the wee hours of Saturday morning, I’m still recovering from the mayhem.
Talk about hard work – I have never done work on this scale before. But man, it sure is fun.
I realized some time ago that no one – not my family, not even my tech-savvy Bay Area friends – truly understands what I do for a living any more. It’s just gotten too “out there.” So on top of the fact that I’m still super worn out and JUST got out of bed at 2:00 PM, I’ve decided to just show y’all instead.
Here are some pics of “light painting” for 400 kids…
Suffice it to say, it was a good idea to be the lead sponsor of the de Young Museum’s third annual “de Youngsters” Art Party, and to create this amazing experience, and to blow all the kiddo’s minds (and their parents’, too), and we will probably do it again next year (although we’ll have to come up with some even cooler idea; sigh). In the meantime, I will try to find ways to scale out this experience to other organizations. That’s just one of the things I do, as Adobe’s Community Engagement Manager.
I also do a lot of other things, too, which is why I need lots of beauty sleep (and a vacation home), so…
Look at the pictures, and enjoy. Off to drink a beer and cuddle with my pup until Monday morning.
