Taylor’s Ofrenda

Born 1994
Great Uncle Jack
Mixed media

I am dedicating my ofrenda to my great uncle John “Jack” Bayer. My family calls him by his nickname, Jack. Jack was a freelance artist in New York City. He worked on Broadway, and for companies such as Lego and the Metropolitan Opera House, designing billboards, playbills, and posters. In his career he designed the Three Musketeers wrapper, the Scrubbing Bubbles men and he worked with Lego. Jack had a love of jazz and art. In creating this ofrenda, I incorporated his accomplishments and his enjoyment of jazz music and art. Though I didn’t know Jack very well, I still feel creating the ofrenda has brought me closer to knowing and remembering him.

Estoy dedicando mi ofrenda a mi tío abuelo John “Jack” Bayer. Mi familia lo llama por su apodo, Jack. Jack era un artista independiente en New York City.  Él trabajó en Broadway, y para empresas como Lego y el Metropolitan Opera House, diseñando  carteleras, cartéles de teatro, y posters. En su carrera diseñó la envoltura de Tres Mosqueteros, los hombres Scrubbing Bubbles y trabajó con Lego. Jack tenía un amor por el jazz y el arte. En la creación de esta ofrenda, incorporé sus logros y su disfrute de la música jazz y el arte. Aunque yo no lo conocía muy bien, yo siento que la creación de la ofrenda me ha ayudado a conocerlo y recordarlo.
