The always amazing, @dirtworship. From her incredibly detailed and imaginative drawn world, to her organizing on projects like @artinadplaces, I'm feeling intense gratitude to have the talented and dedicated presence of Caroline Caldwell working with us on the full 6 week install out here in Cincinnati. This is the seventh in a series of posts highlighting the incredible people who are helping make this upcoming retrospective possible. Whenever I do a monumental scale project, like the show I'm working on right now, people always ask me how it happened. The answer is that a team of talented people are coming together right now to give a big big push, bringing their problem solving skills, their time, energy, training and talents. Without them I wouldn't be doing any of the things that I'm doing, so I started a series of posts about the super heroes in my midst, and what they're all about.

Starting on wheat pasting the stairs! The longer I work in this building the more I appreciate it's odd angles and soaring spaces. @cincycac @zahahadidarchitects
That moment when the Chief Preparator walks in on you and the whole team having a spontaneous and very needed stretch break, and then texts you this picture.... @cincycac @umlaufshank @joecivitello

The back of the switchboard is being wired up! I'm proud of myself for trying out a new medium right in the middle of doing a massive survey show, but I'm also like, um, what's the word? Terrified. (With a dash of that internal voice that's like, "I hate you why do you always do this?"). So yeah, it's gonna be great. Come see us September 22nd if you're in Cincinnati. @cincycac
Getting all the major pieces laid out. @cincycac
Starting to mock up walls on the 5th floor of the museum. The 4th floor will be a fully immersive installation, and the 5th floor will tell the story of the collaborative and community based projects I've been a part of for the last 10 years. @cincycac
It's going up! Wall paper hanging at the @cincycac
Moving day. Marks left behind on the wall as we take down the mini museum we built inside the workspace provided by our amazing and generous hosts the @americansignmuseum . Works starts in full at the @cincycac tomorrow!
