The ISM Gallery was located in the heart of downtown Long Beach and designed to enrich the local community of Long Beach/Southern California and the larger global community through the arts with exhibitions, seminars, lectures and classes. The opening exhibition was entitled “Hello, my name is __________.” and we invited artists to display both old and new work. During the reception, photographer Colin Young-Wolff set up a stylized photobooth and photographed everyone on their way into the exhibition. The idea was to take the long red carpet from your standard release party and hang it from the wall. We called it the Red Carpet Curtain.
