The Roots & Wings of our Starry Night Exposure Program
Here’s a little video to shine some light on the efforts of the Executive Director of Starry Night Exposure Program, Monika Proffitt.
Paving a New Path: The Starry Night Exposure Program from Starry Night Programs on Vimeo.
She speaks about one of her curious visits to Art Basel Miami, in December 2012, and wonders,
“Why I didn’t see myself there? Or examples of other emerging artists like myself?”
…which led her to realizing,
“I quickly saw that I didn’t see myself there.”
She pushed her curiosity a bit further,
“What are the real barriers?”
And once the answers filtered, she took action & reached to the SELECT fair organizers:
“You’re going to have to trust me. Can we work together to curate a really great room?”
And the answer to that question,
“They said YES.”
…which brings us here now!
