DNC Mayor’s Legacy Village Art Project

I was chosen along with a handful of other artists to create an interactive public art project for the Mayor’s Legacy Village during the DNC in Charlotte.  Here I am adding red dot stickers, stars, and art tape to a plexiglass layer over top of a painted canvas.  The imagery represents the creativity and vibrant people of the city of Charlotte.  The city’s architecture and the white dandelions in the background blowing away in the wind symbolize letting go of negativity, focusing on the positive and the future.  Thank you to the participants of all ages who stopped by to help complete this piece!

Yard Art Day!

SDB1

Thrilled that Yard Art Day is getting lots of exposure (Charlotte Observer, ASC Culture Guide, Creative Loafing, etc) and interest! It’s been great working with Deborah Triplett to help make her idea come to fruition. On Labor Day (Sept 3rd), I encourage you to drive around and enjoy all of the art!  For details, go to http://www.yardartday.org/ Please also support Common Market and the ASC as they have been huge sponsors of the project!

Labor Day DNC Carolinas Fest!

Excited to be chosen along with 5 other artists to be a participant in the Carolinas Fest’s Legacy Village, inviting the public to add to my painting.  The project is based on this digital proposal I concocted of Charlotte skyscrapers, elements of nature, and a woman.  The imagery looks to the future and represents the creativity, growth and the vibrant inhabitants of our city.
