My showcase is located at South 6th Street and Hennepin Ave.
Please join me for the free, public celebration of the Future: Made Here launch! The launch event will feature DJ Mad Mardigan, street performers, buskers, and sidewalk activations between 5th and 10th streets along Hennepin Avenue. Hennepin Theatre Trust’s director of public art and placemaking, Joan Vorderbruggen, will lead group walking tours of the displays at 6 and 7 p.m.
Featuring 42 window displays through August 30, 2017, Future: Made Here interprets the theme of future with works by more than 40 Minnesota artists and 120 students. Twice per year, Made Here fills windows and other underused spaces throughout WeDo Minneapolis–the West Downtown Minneapolis Cultural District with works by local artists.

Franconia Sculpture Park
In 2016 I was a Hot Metal Artist in Residence at Franconia Sculpture Park in Safer, MN. My work can currently be seen in the Iron Garden at the park.
Oh Well, 2016
This stone well was built from site sources rocks, and buried into the landscape. All of the labor for this piece was done completely unassisted. Not a single stone was moved with more than the help of tools I could have fabricate myself over 100 years ago. The well is capped with a mesh top that is covered in free form cast iron (cast on site). The well was filled with vermiculite before the top was mortared into place. The piece became a performance of labor and required digging 24 inches deep over a 100 sqft. In total the piece required 2 weeks of manual labor, and caused multiple injuries as I learned masonry work, and moved loads of rock and earth with a wheelbarrow.
My piece, Left Overs, will be on display
Please join me in celebrating James Brenner's exhibition, Hydro-Illuminata at Homewood Studios. The exhibition will feature the cast iron boats, artwork by the iron pour artists, and photographs and video documentation of the iron pour event.
