Fourth Ward Neighbors | In process! 2017

Community mural for Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood in Atlanta, GA. I am leading the project and worked with fourth graders from Hope Hill Elementary School to brainstorm ideas around COMMUNITY. I took something from each of their drawings to create a "wallpaper" design to be painted by the community in a "paint by number" method.

Funding for this project provided by the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Neighborhood Arts Grant.

Little Five Arts Alive | April – June 2016

As a resident artist with Little Five Arts Alive I worked with community members and passersby in Little Five Points to create spontaneous sculpture from upcycled materials. This was an attempt to make a canopy for some shade from old blinds, records and mesh screens.
