BAM 50 State Initiative Art Project
BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) invited me to create a public engagement piece. I created a 10ft x 6ft figurative collage on which the public wrote their responses to the prompt “What freedoms need to be protected the most right now?”. The final piece with people’s responses was projected on BAM’s public outdoor billboard, urging civic dialog and voting.

Black Love Fest NYC
Sugar Hill Children's Museum, NY
I was invited by The Black School to create an installation for this one-day festival, including many other artists. It was a circular tent with a projection of dance associated with healing rituals and words by Audre Lorde. Kids activated the space with their own sounds and movement.
