I am thrilled to announce that I received funding from the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement to make PRESENT, a socially engaged artwork designed to promote emotional well-being. I and the very talented and generous people at Washington University worked alongside at-risk youth this summer to make thousands of original drawings which we will soon distribute as free postcards throughout St. Louis.

I was honored to be in several exhibitions this summer: SoundShape at The Sheldon Art Galleries was part of the Creative Stimulus show curated by Mel Watkin, featuring the three 2017 awardees from Critical Mass. I am using the Creative Stimulus funding to continue my practice of community via ASpace. Learn more my work through this podcast. Co-curators Paddy Johnson and Emily Stamey choose my work for Cast A Clear Light at the Weatherspoon Art Museum. Amy Granat included my work in Spring: Adrienne, Body, Catalina, Cole, Danica, Edo, Felicia, Jesse, Michael, Misha & The Girls, Mort, Rachel, Ryan and Shane at ParapetRealHumans.
The ReSolve social practice project continues with gatherings of its participants at ASpace. The video is now in the permanent collection of the World Chess Museum in St. Louis. Slices, my most recent work in the Sugar Series was shown at at the Visual Arts Gallery of the University of Wyoming, where I was a visiting artist and speaker at the Re-envisioning the Laboratory Sci-Art Symposium. Additionally, I completed Pinpoint, a collaborative project with a few astrophysicists for Vanderbilt University and contributed a video to the Future and Behind exhibit in Venice, Italy.
