New Song Sunday - NYC Gone Gone

This week is the opening of the Cooper-Hewitt's National Design Triennial: Why Design Now?

And my super-amazing, awe-inspiring, big sis and artiste extraordinaire Rachel Wright, has a piece in it - yeah, she rocks. Sigh, I'll be able to say "I knew her when..." AND I get to be her arm candy in New York City next week for the reception. Life is good ;)

Let the preparations begin, here's Conor Oberst with "NYC-Gone Gone":

Here is Rachel's piece in the exhibit:
About this design: "I based it on the traditional Maori facial tattoos. These gentlemen would “sign” documents and contracts by drawing their unique facial tattoo instead of signing their names." -Rachel Wright

More Wright designs:


  1. Woot, woot! Thanks for the props, Trac! Love the song too

  2. How exciting and wonderful! The designs are beautiful...I'd love to see the exhibit...will it travel?

  3. Toolgrrl (aka Rachel Wright) - heck yeah! glad you liked it

    Waterrose- Yes, we're completely stoked ;) Rachel tells me that the show won't be traveling, but that there will be a catalogue published... I'd be interested in seeing that too - should be good.

  4. wow! the last design is especially fab, but I love the Maori designs too.

  5. Zowie, Amazing wonderful sister. Congratulations to Rachel, fabulous work. And you my dear are so talented as well. Have a lovely time. Cheering in Bemidji. Jane
