Gene Davis’s painting Jasmine Jumper (1966) is a massive 119 1/2 by 161 1/2 inches. That means it gets special treatment when it goes off view.
At our calendar planning meeting for education, we use color-coded post-it notes and paper to plan out our events. Everything from school programs, to teacher trainings, to gallery events finds a place on the wall. My colleague Rachel snapped a photo as I couldn’t help but pause and appreciate the colorfully ordered-chaos that we created for spring. It reminded me of the bars of color in Gene Davis’s Jasmine Jumper (1966).
