Someone Trashed My Trolly!

My “Emotional Baggage Carts” serve as vessels to dispose of racial trauma. – to separate myself from these experiences – to grant access to grace. – to create new possibilities, free from the constraints of the past.

The installation also provides an opportunity for anyone to let go of these experiences from their own personal narrative.

I guess this work can be triggering too.

Someone, trashed my installation of “Dorchester Road Rage: Baggage Cart” in Springfield Mo. Triggering for me, once again, an old college memory and the adrenalin rush I felt, being chased by a mob of white teens while riding my bike.

Thankfully Sculpture Walk Springfield fixed the cart.

People suck sometimes. Maybe, I shouldn’t let people touch my sculptures.
