2017 was the year of public art projects for me. I was chosen to participate in the St.Clair Superior Year of the Rooster event and created a "Puttin on the Ritz" Rooster that Dominion purchased outright and has displayed in all it's fancy glory in front of their downtown headquarters. (without even a chance for it to go to auction)
I also was a part of Cincinnati's Petcasso event and made a Galaxy Cat for their fundraising auction....opening night was at the amazing Cincinnati Museum of Art. If you have never visited this museum, go. It is spectacular.
The year also included an interesting project with the local mall. I ran a Creativity Series which meant I taught public art classes in the common area of the mall - on a stage - with a headset. Not my comfort zone, but it was a blast.
This led to opening a gallery in the mall, hosting an art show with local artists, teaching monthly classes and painting a large interactive mural!
