Art 84

Melanie Hickerson, “1956 (West Texas)”

In addition to creating jewelry, decorative arts, and graphic design, I also am the Director of Art 84, a non-profit that presents impactful original art, music, and dance through technology, media, and events.

The Summer of 2021, Art 84 presented The Struggle and the Glory: The American Experience – works by Cornelius Carter with/at the Neill-Cochran House Museum. The exhibit has closed, but watch the virtual tour video along with other videos on our Art 84 YouTube channel.

Peaceful Greetings and Happy New Year!

Snowflake shaped section of “Peaceful Waters”

TFI’s 2021 Holiday Greeting

For 43 years, my family’s company, Technology Futures, Inc., has designed our own holiday cards reflecting a current event or trend. My father, TFI founder John Vanston, writes the verse and I design the card around the theme. This year we focus on the possibilities for civilian space travel as a great example of human imagination and technological ingenuity. Enjoy!

See links in the text below for the short highlight video and the longer tango version

These two (Short & Long) Tango videos are from the Closing Reception of the Struggle and the Glory. Hudson Marek filmed it and and I edited the videos.
