PUBLIC ART

 

The thirst for public art came in high school with a personal adoration for graffiti.  At my progressing Catholic all girls high school (NDA), the nuns were coming out of their habits and are probably still questioning why they allowed a graffiti mural in their halls (downstairs behind the stage of course.)

 

Today I’ve come a long way from producing that project to the Peace Wars Chronicles of performance art that encompassed a whole curriculum and an overnight blowing up of the Brookland (Washington) Bridge (with Art of course) in 2001 to the Yarn Balm-ing Project we did in 2014.

 

There’s a lot in between including a tour of duty at the Corcoran and several commissioned productions as well.

 

Currently I am doing Power-Poles—wrapping up the Electric trees that have replaced our forests.
