Oh. my. goodness.
I have been following Emmy’s work for years now. YEARS. (And you can follow her work too, just click here!) I am totally in love with her art and amazed by her talent, so when I saw that she was given the opportunity to install her work at the Chicago Flower and Garden Show at Navy Pier, I knew I had to photograph it. So I reached out, things worked out, and Jason and I headed out to Navy Pier Friday night for the pre-opening show.
If you aren’t familiar with Emmy’s art yet, here is a little bit about her:
She salvages windows and freehand paints her creations right on the glass. Yes, even the typography (freehand!!) right on the glass.
Annnnndddd she’s awesome. Enough said :) Enjoy the pics!!!
NBC5 Chicago did a live interview with Emmy right before the show opened
and here she is with Leeann Trotter!
Emmy and I in front of the installation
the show had some other STUNNING installations, you seriously need to go and check it out!
nothing better than a walking exhibit, and the twins below were one :) And then there’s Emmy being fiesty :)
