Public Participation Artwork

The events of today proved to me that art is alive and active. I set up a canvas on the campus of ASU at noon today and asked students to help me paint it. The response was INCREDIBLE. Almost every student I asked to help me was overjoyed to be able to participate in such a public act of creativity. With a bit of help from more than 50 students, we created a beautiful, colorful painting that will be donated to Maggie’s Place, a great local organization that takes in pregnant women who are either alone or on the streets.


Students of Arizona State University, you surprised me today with your passion, your creativity, and your willingness to slow down and paint. Thank you.
