Public work

This mural is the result of weeks of ideation, planning and effort by the participants of the 2007 YAAW program. Each panel is 4’ x 8’ and stands as the back drop of the preformance stage at Promendae Park in downtown Toledo, Ohio.

For the past 15 years, the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo has sponsored the Young Artist at Work program. The objective of YAAW is to provide an intensive arts experience that fosters artistic self-expression and a quality work ethic that can impact the youth throughout adulthood. The program encourages expression, refinement, cross-cultural sharing, and the exchange of ideas. The opportunity provides exposure to the concept of art as a business, as well as the creation of public art for the greater Toledo community. seven

translation

After finding a view in the DAAP building, three translations were created. The first is an atmospheric translation done by using graphite, the second is a figure field translation using black marker and the last is a line translation using differing diameter Micron pens.

models

When designing this model, it was not to exceed 16 inches in height, length or width. This model utilizes gaps and planes as primary elements.

The wooden model on the opposite page also had the 16 inch constraint. It’s rectilinear form was achieved by using rectangles of various dimensions.
