Public & Community Art
Being exposed to and surrounded by artwork can have a tremendous impact on individuals and strengthening communities, I have been fortunate to have had opportunities to experience this first hand. I believe in the power of artwork and art making. Beyond personal experiences, there is research and reporting on the value of public art for cities and communities, art in education and it's impact on community and individual health in the community environment and hospitals, artwork is much more than 'decoration'.
Below are some of the public art experiences I have had the opportunity to be apart of:
Outdoor Mural Painting
Pendleton Mapped - Mural, Cincinnati, OH
I had to the opportunity to work as an apprentice and detail artist for ArtWorks Cincinnati. I worked with professional artists and peers to create a large-scale mural enhancing the Cincinnati community through public artwork. The lead ArtWorks artist was Michael Stillion, and the mural itself was designed by local Cincinnati artists David and Barbara Day.

Additionally I have volunteered for a variety of other community and public art projects such as Cradle Cincinnati in its work at the Price Hill Health Center , the Cincinnati JCC's Under One Roof : Sukkah Art Exhibition Community, and more.
