Art in Public Spaces
I've had opportunities over the last few years to create works for public spaces. The projects are generally of a scale that requires a team; it is my great joy to be associated with wonderful artists around Southern California and across the country. As program director of the arts non-profit Piece by Piece, I've collaborated with this fantastic group on a growing number of significant projects. My good friend artist Luz Mack-Durini has partnered with me on many jobs.

In a series of workshops, I worked with members of the community to create mosaic artwork for a series of planters and trash receptacles. See more photos here.
