Collaborative Arts Programming
As an artist, integrative and holistic public art are a core value of my practice. I believe that all members of society should be invited to participate in collaborative, socially engaged programming. For more information about customization for creative public programs, please contact via the About the Artist page. Previous collaborative projects have taken place in collaboration with Portland Children's Museum, The Arts Center, The Right Brain Initiative, and many others.
