I created this piece with the fabulous Helms Jarrell for the Art of Recycling Public Art Initiative.
It features street prints pulled from Enderly Park neighborhood streets, on top of collages Helms created with pages from her husband Greg’s book about Enderly Park, A Riff of Love: Notes on Community and Belonging.
We chose our street print locations from stories shared at Hannah Hasan’s Muddy Turtle Talks. Each canvas is marked on the back with its specific location. The finished work hangs in the Bette Rae Thomas Center on Tuckaseegee.
I loved working on this project with Helms and meeting folks from the west side. Thank you Arts & Science Council and Susan Jedrzejewski for making it all possible.
