Ladies of Ellensville, NY Cake of the Month Club 1953

When I made this piece I was thinking about how as families and communities we create a shared folklore to memorialize people, places and events. As individuals we create personal mythologies to contextualize out past and imagined futures. The time capsules are holding artifacts from a cake of the month club in 1953. There broken dishes, a cookie made by Linda Holtzinger, a Bakelite fork, a candy wrapper and other remnants from the cake club. This piece led me to make my “Short Stories” series and is in the collection of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
