MAXINEMAXINE - MayQueens2017

at ON ALL DAY A Desert Reflection at Llano Del Rio

Curated by Karyl Newman of Positional Projects: https://positionalprojects.org/ONALLDay.html

Leora Wien hosted her work MaxineMaxine - MayQueens2017, at Jackson Lake where Llano colony hunting cabins were located, while the logging camp was located to the southwest. Every year colonists would celebrate with a maypole. Leora Wien and Michelle Andrade created this iteration honoring a woman whose inspired political commentary is sustaining the vision of a more egalitarian, just, and harmonious future. Coincidentally, Rep. Waters represents the 43rd Congressional district, where a tight-knit core of Llano del Rio comrades, including Walter Millsap and AC Austin, settled in the mid 1920’s.
