Art should be at the service of the community.

Ezra Pound writes:

"Music begins to atrophy when it departs too far from the dance, poetry begins to atrophy when it gets too far from music."

Likewise, Art begins to atrophy when it wanders too far from the human community it is meant to serve, to instruct, to delight.

I create projects that permit professional arts organizations, educational institutions, and communities to work together.
Each component in this collaboration adds its own particular expertise to the project.
Each component has its own needs, its own energy, its own brilliance, its own resources.
These components work together, meld, to achieve a directed, united purpose.
The result is a unified effort, inclusive, supportive.
The end result belongs to everyone.
The pages that follow are a mix of professional, community-oriented, and community-created work.
