Earth Stories

I have been accepted into SAQA’s 25th Anniversary exhibition, Earth Stories, which will open at Michigan State University Museum in Spring of 2014. This will be the first time I create work to fit a specific theme with guidelines on size. I am excited about the opportunity and look forward to working on the piece. It is going to be an interesting and exhilirating challenge. The work will travel for 3 years.

Here is the original prospectus statement about the show:

There are many stories of hope across the globe. Both individuals and small groups are working on projects that when added together make a positive impact on increasing the quality of life on this planet. Earth Stories will celebrate the stories of people or projects that enhance the planet, make a significant difference in restoring and/or protecting the environment, increase sustainability and otherwise improve the earth we all occupy.
