We all carry emotional baggage. This manifests differently for each of us. Some of us carry shopping carts of pain and bitterness while some of us sport a wee tote bag. How we choose to handle our baggage makes a difference. We have the choice, to let it define us or to let it go and move forward.

My Emotional Baggage Carts are vessels for racial trauma. My baggage carts serve to separate myself from these experiences. Each recovered shopping cart is woven with recycled rope, bottle caps, twine, paracord, fabric, LED lights, pony beads and zip tie blankets.

There is opportunity to shift structural language when a person is invited to play with unexpected materials without any expectations. Join me to discover what materials are used to create these sculptures, and look within, to recognize and release the emotional baggage you, yourself are carrying. Audience participation is encouraged

Throughout the weekend, you are invited to make strings of beads of recycled bottle caps in the 2nd floor common area of Art 150 and visit with me in my studio #231. Come play with me.

I will have a selection of prints, tote bags and mini baggage carts for sale.

NOTE: Theda Sandiford’s Art 150 Studio #231 on the second floor of 150 Bay Entrance lobby for the 2nd floor studios is separate from that for the residential units of 150 Bay and can be found at the NE corner of the building, at the corner of 1st St. and Provost St.
