Ordway Center for the Performing Arts commission. St. Paul, Toronto, Brooklyn, Cairo. May-June exhibition, Collaboration with the L’artivist Group.


I collaborated with a group of life coaches to work with over 300 children in four countries on a postal art collaboration in which the kids glued everyday objects like old clarinet reeds, coins, and family photos to a section of plastic billboard material and wrote personal stories sparked by the objects. Kids from different countries were paired up on each piece. The pieces were displayed in Rice Park for the Ordway’s Koch International Children’s Festival as well as at a public park in Toronto, Canada.
