Community ART Projects
^^^^ In November 2020, I created a series of eight different patterned mural strips to bring a splash of color to various neighborhoods in Camden, New Jersey. The mural strips were available on a first come, first serve basis for local Camden, NJ residents and businesses. All of the mural strips pictured above were painted on leftover scraps of parachute cloth from former mural projects in my studio and then later installed in the public.
^^^^ In October 2020, I assisted in the painting of the Black Camden Lives Matter street mural, in partnership with Walls for Justice and the National Stop the Violence Campaign. My role in this project was instructing volunteers and leading the chalking of the entire lettering down five city blocks. The Black Camden Lives Matter Street Mural is located at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Camden, New Jersey and extends down Broadway Avenue five city blocks.
^^^ During Fall 2020, I painted two book arks for the Camden County Pop Up Library- an organization that provides free access to books in Camden County, New Jersey. The first book ark I painted is currently installed at the intersection of Atlantic Ave and Broadway Ave in Camden, New Jersey and the second book ark is installed at 3123 Tuckahoe Road in the Fairview neighborhood in Camden, New Jersey.
^^^ During Spring 2020, I created a series of food bank signage in response to the COVID19 pandemic for the Mighty Writers. These 8 hand painted signs were doubled sided and bilingual and went to food bank locations in Center City Philadelphia, Kennett Square, Pennsylvania and Camden, New Jersey.
^^^ During the summer of 2019, I taught Visual Arts to gifted students at the Summer Institute for the Gifted at Bryn Mawr College. In class, we learned about contemporary artists and how to apply their ideas and artistic processes to create our own unique and individual artwork.
^^^ The images above were taken during March 2017 when I led as an Installation Technician of Jenny Holzer Truisms for "Person of the Crowd: Contemporary Art of Flanerie Exhibition" at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For this project, I led an experienced team of five artists to install Jenny Holzer Truisms on temporary wall locations in Center City, Philadelphia, employing the guerrilla image-spreading technique of wheat paste.
