Kickstarter Launch: Flying Blue Buffalo Project
January 26, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm
form & concept presents a Kickstarter campaign, anchored by an open house and panel discussion event, in support of Armond Lara’s Flying Blue Buffalo Project. The fundraiser will go towards the creation of a monumental installation of cast resin winged buffalo sculptures, based on a series of wood carvings by Lara. Inspired by the Santa Fe artist’s family history, this project tells the centuries-long story of enslaved Native American children. The Flying Blue Buffalo Kickstarter campaign launches at form & concept on Friday, January 26 from 5-7 pm and runs through February 28.
The installation will debut in form & concept’s atrium on August 17, 2018. Mock-ups of the buffalo sculptures will appear at a February 17 open house event, and Lara will convene a panel of history experts to discuss the project and its themes.
