Sandy Lee: Success Beyond Thorns
Date(s) - March 11, 2019 - March 15, 2019
What defines a successful person? Is it the person’s job, education, attire? This exhibition is a visual storytelling of the sacrifices, fears and obstacles, inspirations, love, and knowledge I have encountered and accepted on my journey of “success” thus far and what I have come to find the “definition” of it. The two wearable sculptures draw inspiration from my family, my culture, my friends and peers, California (the place I was born and raised in), and myself. It has been a long six-year journey here at San Jose State University, and I owe this crown as a symbol of my success to my loved ones, but most of all, to not forget I owe it to myself as well.
