Public Art Collaborations
Collaboration is a by-product of being in community. Combine three decades of teaching art, living in a small town, a few golden opportunities, and it happens quite naturally. I learned to be less protective of my work, more invitational and curious instead, and found myself saying out loud, well, let’s just see where this thing takes us, shall we? Here are some of my favourite projects, photo album style, which came together because all kinds of different people so generously participated.
