Public Art Practice

The focus of my public art is defining the site with a cultural and historical reference that resonates with the local community. The concepts of Creative Placemaking are integral to my work. Two public art projects have received a Las Vegas Mayor’s Urban Design Awards for Public Art. The first award was in 2008.  I was a design team member with Dayo Adelaja, Sylvester Collier and Adolfo R. Gonzalez for the sculpture "Ancestral Gateway." The second award was in 2011 for "Flourish", a cultural urban trail consisting of twelve sidewalk enhancements along the Cultural Corridor. I have completed 9 public art projects to date.

FLOURISH

"FLOURISH", a Las Vegas Cultural Corridor Urban Trail Sidewalk Enhancement is a wayfinding marker enhancement along 12 city blocks. Funded by the Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act (SNPLMA) and the Las Vegas Arts Commission,  the Cultural Corridor Urban Trail sidewalk enhancements consist of 12 city blocks of 25 repeating wings and 8 flourishes with their corresponding logos.   The repeating wings reflect eddies and swirls of what was once the Las Vegas Creek which flowed in this area
