Dot Dot Dot...Connect presents Pola Negri & Josephine Baker Mural Reveal
Dot Dot Dot...Connect will celebrate the reveal of the mural they recently brought to Austin.The mural honors two female artists who had the courage to follow their dreams far away from home: Pola Negri, an emigre from Poland to the United States, who became a Hollywood icon of the Silent Cinema; and Josephine Baker, an African American born in the U.S., who became one of the most successful and admired entertainers in her adopted France.
To match the symmetry in their life experiences and build connections across cultures, two visual artists from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds were engaged to do the job: a Polish artist, Julia Mirny, and a local Austin muralist, Dan Terry.
The event will happen in front of the mural itself with a talk about the concept of this project, the artists involved, and a short Q&A. The party will follow at the Texas Saké Co right across from the mural site.
