YEAR IN RAINBOW

COLLABORATION OF COLOR AND THE HUMAN PORTRAIT

A YEAR IN RAINBOW is burlesque performer Darlinda Just Darlinda’s foray into the “living art” milieu. From August 1, 2007 to August 1, 2008, Darlinda will explore the colors Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple both individually and together as a six-colored Rainbow. On even-numbered months (August, October, December, etc), Darlinda will wear a single color for the duration of the month, and produce a show inspired by that color. On odd-numbered months (September, November, January, etc) she will wear all rainbow every day.
“A YEAR IN RAINBOW is about collaboration and exploring new mediums through color and human portrait,” says Darlinda, ” But it’s also an art/social experiment to see what kind of reactions I get from the public at large when I wear one color or rainbow for an entire year.” Darlinda will record her experience via daily photographs and journal entries on her website www.yearinrainbow.com.

A YEAR IN RAINBOW kicks off on August 1st, 2007, when Darlinda starts her spectrum with the color Red. The first live performance of the A YEAR IN RAINBOW series is on August 20, 2007 at Galapagos Art Space, where Darlinda will produce a show called “The Red Self-Centered Leo Show” exploring the powerful, generous, egotistical (yet inspiring) ways of the color red and those born under the astrological sign of Leo.

September will be dedicated to the Rainbow; on September 8, 2007 she will perform as “Super Dance” with the Rainbow-ettes at the Deitch Gallery’s Art Parade. The rest of the year will play out as follows; October celebrates Orange, November: Rainbow, December: Yellow, January: Rainbow, February: Green, March: Rainbow, April: Blue, May: Rainbow, June: Purple and July: Rainbow. A YEAR IN RAINBOW is inspired by Linda M. Montano’s “14 Years of Living Art”, via Morty Diamond’s “Year in Pink”.

ABOUT DARLINDA JUST DARLINDA
Darlinda Just Darlinda has been working as a Burlesque Performer in New York since 2003.

The Village Voice calls Darlinda a “Mastermind of Bizarre Extravaganza.” www.darlindajustdarlinda.com
