Blazing Editions had the pleasure of producing Jonathan Blaustein's newest works for his current exhibition at The Harwood Museum of Art, “Party City is the Devil” in Taos, New Mexico. Blaustein has been collecting candy colored items from Party City since 2016 and turning them into contemporary sculptures to capture. He wants to make people aware of the many party supplies that we often mindlessly throw out and how it effects the planet. The Harwood Museum of Art and Blaustein made a great decision in incorporating the idea of sculpture within the dye sublimation process, evoking three dimensionality and vivid displays of form and color.
“Party City is the Devil” is running from September 6 - November 10, 2019.

Galleries: Studio 238 and Peter & Madeleine Martin Corridor
