Toy Bricks at The Rock Flat at White River
These Lego Bricks were made for the Indy Art and Seek project. I was tasked with using existing structures in order to create something unseen by the casual viewer. I hope these giant Lego bricks serves as a reminder that when we build, it should always be a creative and colorful endeavor. More info on Art & Seek found here.
Art Restoration at Madam Walker Legacy Center
I enjoyed my time restoring the artistic ceilings at The Madam Walker Theater and soaking up all of the artistry that originally went into its conception. Next time you're in the building, please take a moment and admire all of the intricate work put into making the theater as special of a place as the woman who built it. For process photos CLICK HERE.
Art & Seek - Haughville Butterflies
I’ve painted an assortment of black and white butterflies along the east pathway of IPS Wendell Phillips School 63, and with help from the students, they’ve added their own painting to them. On the west side of the school, in full Art and Seek fashion, I’ve painted more than 12 hydrophobic butterflies hidden along the sidewalks. These hidden butterflies can be located simply by wetting the ground to reveal their locations. Bring some water and happy hunting! View the video here...
