An on-going interest in site-specific, cheaply produced, public art and mail art has evolved alongside studio practice:
Mayor's Committee on Art and Culture Baltimore 2005 Minerva 2'x2' woodblock print. Art for boarded houses, River North project Baltimore.
Mayor's Committee on Art and Culture Baltimore 1996 300 Road Signs, curated by Louise Flores. I commemorated the B.&O. Railroad strike - the first incidence of collective action in the U.S., with six site specific signs at Camden Yards. Images are covered in text from telegrams sent during the strike.
Maryland Historical Museum, Baltimore 1997, I was invited to create a painted mural that interpreted an object from the collection. I chose an Arts and Crafts pot from Haynes pottery, 1890. The shape of the pot was painted large scale and included a portrait of William Morris and quotes from Ruskin about craft as un-alienated labour.
