Arts Programming for the Anthropocene: Art in Community and Environment is available now!

I am so excited to announce that Arts Programming for the Anthropocene: Art in Community and Environment is available now from Routledge Press! I have worked on this book project for the past few years as a contributing author and as the books illustrator.  The book charts the paths of five field-based arts programs in the U.S., Europe and Australia, making a case for a shift in current arts education pedagogy to a more community-based and environmentally-focused model.

News from Lynden Residency…

Excited to be in Day 3 of a residency at the Lynden Sculpture Garden in Milwaukee! Thanks to Joseph Mougel and Cynthia Brinich-Langlois (and baby Yvette!) for arranging it for us!

Water keeps leaking into my brain (pun intended). The work I create here over the next couple of years (I’ll be traveling back and forth) will most likely be consumed by it.

Remembering the Donkey Gallery

As I was going through flat files trying to make room for some new drawings, I ran across these old Donkey Journals. The Donkey Gallery marks the heyday of art in Albuquerque, at least for me. In an old shop in Barelas, David Leigh, Larry Bob Phillips and Sherlock Terry started something that was magical for its run. Thanks to the innovative art, community building and best openings ever!
