Donna completely transformed our space with found-fabric installations, lasers and golden eggs, magic crystals, animal bones, hieroglyphics and other mysterious offerings.

    Dear W&TW Ladies,
    Looks like a great show! I can’t believe I missed an opening night that involved “a ritual performance complete with wandering spirit animal”… and it really does look like she magically turned the space into something completely different! (and by she, I’m sure it means a lot of Ya’ll working on it too, those setting up shots look intense)
    Thanks for the update gals!
    Most Sincerely,
    Your Favorite Wall Painter,
    Anniey
