Yesterday was a marathon day of travel, art installation, and opening reception. There were also snacks.
The show is a collection called ‘city/seen’ on view at the Emy Frentz Arts Guild (Mankato, MN) till June 17.
Any excuse to eat cheese & crackers…

I received photos from the Traffic Signal Mural Project of my finished utility box. My design, “Wet Paint” is an old favorite, a shot of the perfect juicy swirl of vibrant colors Sawyer had on his palette one hot summer day before he dug in with his brush. I love the contrast of this image against the brick wall.

I’m excited to be part of two current public art initiatives – in Minneapolis and Mankato – that will turn unsightly utility boxes into works of art. Love this type of civic initiative!
This is what the proposal/design layouts look like. Someday, when the boxes are complete, I’ll post photographs of the finished work!
Nokomis Piers: one of 12 designs selected by the City of Minneapolis for the utility box wrap project.
Wet Paint: recently chosen by CityArt Mankato as one of 10 designs kicking off the first phase of its Traffic Signal Mural Project.
Stay tuned for more art in public places and keep an eye out for art coming to a street corner near you 🙂
