Window Shopping

Various originals and ceramic sculptures by Jessica Ninci, 2022

Window Shopping is a temporary window box installation of ceramic sculptures by local artist Jessica Ninci. The sculptures are ceramic recreations of objects found and purchased from local Galveston shops - mainly unique items from antique stores, thrift shops, and small local businesses. Some are faithful recreations, while some are inspired by the originals but then adapted to their new existence in clay. In addition to providing a reference and inspiration for the ceramic sculptures, the original objects were entirely sourced locally - providing funds to the local economy, specifically small businesses. The installation will be displayed to the public at 2510 Market Street, Galveston through the Summer of 2022. This installation was generously funded and supported by a Galveston Public Art Grant from the Cultural Arts Commission of the City of Galveston. www.galvestontx.gov/1086/Cultural-Arts-…

Another public component of this work is a published zine (release date TBD) that shows the original object and the recreated object side side by side. Once published, these will be available to purchase.
