I have been invited to show three works in The Biggs Museum of American Art’s juried exhibition, Visions & Voices highlighting the work of twenty regional African American artists of the Mid-Atlantic region.
Free Your Mind: Social Justice Public Art Installation
Free Your Mind is a collection of personal narratives. Participants are invited to share an personal experience with implicit bias to release this story from their personal narrative. Later, artist Theda Sandiford will weave these stories in the installations as computer generated voice recordings. Motion sensors trigger these recording in the installation of the tapestry.
Do you have left over materials from an art project? Have WAY too much Cadmium White when you need Pastels? Do you have skeins of yarn you are not using? Or supplies from an art practice you no longer use?
Come to Sky Garden Gallery’s Art Supply Swap with your items and trade, them for something else.
March 4, 2022, 5pm – 8pm Location: 150 Bay Street, Jersey City
Summit Public Art: The Baggage We Carry

Three Emotional Baggage Carts are on display for the next year. When the sun sets, the carts solarl panels light up and take on a new form, glowing from within.

Public Voice Award
One piece from Visions & Voices will be added to the Biggs’ permanent collection. You get to help us select the final work, I hope you pick mine. Members of the community will choose the artwork that the Biggs will purchase through a vote for the Public Voice Award. Visitors can vote in person through April 29.
