Anandamayi Arnold for International Orange
The inimitable Anandamayi Arnold, a paper artist and Castle in the Air teacher, is one of fifteen artists contributing to International Orange, a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. For her part in the exhibition, Anandamayi is creating seven life-sized paper dresses commemorating the Fiesta Queens who attended the opening gala of the Bridge in 1937. In this video she shares her thoughts on the making of the dresses and the stories which inspired them.
The premiere party for International Orange will take place on Thursday, May 24, at San Francisco's Fort Point. For a preview of all of the art and festivities surrounding this grand anniversary, visit the International Orange website.
