Exhibition and Publication Record

2015                Hood College Presidential Inauguration

                        Organized two events:

                        1) Graffiti Painting (interactive collaboration)

The public was invited to add their contributions to two large canvases in front of the Tatem Arts building on inauguration day. Hood College art faculty also contributed their mark-making skills to these highly collaborative and interactive paintings. The paintings will later be displayed on campus.

Worked with Hood College IT and alumna Cecelia Lee ’15 to project her abstract psychedelic animation (timed to music) to the façade of the Tatem Arts building.
