In preparation for a new publication we're working on, I've been researching the New Bedford Cinderella Seagull controversy from last summer. Rayana Grace sent me a photo of these stickers that were produced in relationship to the sculpture to raise money for breast cancer research.

On Thursday during AHA! Night in DT New Bedford, as part of CURE's programming related to the education and engagement wall at the museum, I did a two hour performance where I worked with people visiting the museum to write twelve "scores for magic moments" (free ideas for being emotional in the city). The scores were made specifically for the individuals who co-authored them, and each one begins with the participant selecting one of six objects from the table. I ask which object makes you feel most comfortable, and from there, a series of questions unfolds to help me understand what a magic moment might look like for you - as you talk, I write. Once the score is done, it goes into a tiny envelope, sealed, dated, and identified as yours. The envelope should only be opened when you're in dire need of a magic moment.

When CURE was starting to develop, I thought it might make sense to have a uniform for public engagements. Over the last couple months, Addie Thibeault, a junior textiles student in CVPA, and I discussed various artist uniforms, and through conversation, we decided this dress would be the perfect garment to start with since I already have a similar linen dress that I wear for most public events. She selected the fabric and made the dress for me.
