Back in October i was asked to participate in a group show entitled "We Made This for You" which was an opportunity for artists to make art as a gift to individuals or organizations that wouldn’t be able to have their art otherwise. The show was commissioned by sojourn Visual arts.
I've always admired the history and work of Boys & Girls Haven here in Louisville, KY and wanted to create something that proclaimed a simple message for the boys & girls they serve. I took the opportunity to create a piece that was a bit more ornate than my usual type treatments and a huge thanks goes to John Passafiume for taking the time to give me a few pointers.
Last week the show ended, and the piece was transported to Boys & Girls Haven to be hung above their gymnasium entrance, which serves as the resident's activity center as well as host to meetings and campus functions. Additionally I had letterpress cards of the graphic printed at Hound Dog Press for attendees of the show and for the staff of Boys & Girls Haven. Needless to say this was an amazing project that I am grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute.
