Emotional Beginnings

Hello readers of the ECHO Blog! My name is Brendon Johnson and you will be seeing a lot more of me in the coming months. As of yesterday I began my role as the Graphic Communications Intern and I could not be more excited!
What better way to kick off my experience at ECHO then to jump right into our newest exhibit, XOXO, An Exhibit About Love and Forgiveness which opened just a couple days before I started. However, I did not take this adventure alone. I was joined by another new face, the new Marketing & Social Media Intern Bianca Roa and what better way to get to know your new co workers than diving into to this exhibit about emotions.

As soon as I walked into the exhibit I wasn’t sure what to go to first, I just wanted to play with and experience everything. One of the first things that Bianca and I tried was the emotional faces booth. We squeezed into the booth and pressed the button multiple times to have our wonderful, emotional faces displayed for the rest of the guests at the exhibit… Lucky us.

As much fun as we all could have (and did have) with this exhibit there was also a great opportunity to do a little bit of self-reflection. Two of the options for this were “Release the Negative” and “Love Tokens.” I think releasing some of the negativity as I enter this new role is very important and where else will I find a better way to do so. To release the negative we all wrote down something that hurt us, made us sad, mad or upset before we shred it up and let those negative feelings go.

After reflecting on the negatives in life it was time to refocus on what really matters, the positive!
We moved to the love token station, this time instead of writing down the not so great things in life we wrote down or drew something or somebody that we love! Then we rolled it up, crushed it, and pressed it (getting a good arm workout in the process) to make a small little love token to give to somebody that we love or care about.

These few activities are only the beginnings of what XOXO has to offer, there truly was something for everybody. If you want to experience XOXO, An Exhibit About Love and Forgiveness, you still have plenty of time! The exhibit will be open until May 15th.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to share some of the awesome stuff going on at ECHO in the next four months, here is to new beginnings and new opportunities.
