Forecast Public Artworks Research and Development grant
2008 - 2009
(artist-rendered photo)

Winning this Research and Development grant resulted in figuring out how to take the Story Graph Portraits out of the gallery and turn them into durable outdoor pieces using materials like laser-etched stone and digital photo-imaged ceramics. Doing outdoor installations in and around educational institutions, public parks, and health care facilities have become real possibilities in furthering my vision of using public art to help people in these institutions recognize, share, and cope with difficult emotions. It has also allowed me to work with new collaborators: architects and landscape architects.
