Art Studio Overview:

The sculptural installation is a ceremonial community entrance to the new KC Police Station, the third largest Percent for Art Commission for the City of Kansas City, Missouri. The project, intended as a meaningful bridge with the surrounding neighborhoods, featured a comprehensive cultural engagement with hands-on workshops that touched nearly 1000 people and 15 area schools, held in collaboration with ArtsTech, a local arts outreach organization dedicated to at-risk and adjudicated youth. The arbor-like structure integrates cross-cultural symbols in terra-cotta relief tiles and custom glazed ceramic bowls, weaving together a story based on peace and reconciliation.
