I am thrilled to announce that I recently received funding from the Gephardt Institute to make a socially engaged artwork this summer, 2018. I and the very talented and generous people at Washington University will work alongside at-risk youth to make thousands of original drawings which we will then distribute thoughout St. Louis. Should you be interested in participating, let me know!
I am honored to be in several upcoming exhibitions. Artist and collector Carol Cole features my work in Cast A Clear Light, opening March 3rd at the Weatherspoon Art Museum. Join me April 21st at The Luminary to celebrate the show, A Day With Amanda, Adrienne, Body, Catalina, Cole, Danica, Felicia, Jess, Jesse, Michael, Misha & The Girls, Mort, Rachel, Ryan, Sage, and Shane, curated by Amy Granat.

I am using the funding to continue my practice of community via ASpace. Learn a bit about my work through this podcast. March 23rd is the annual auction at The Luminary.
