A sun I submitted to CBS was shown on the CBS Sunday morning broadcast on March 31, 2019 following a story about wrongfully convicted artist Richard Phillips who created art in prison for decades. So I was astonished when I got an email with the subject line “We’re using your sun again tomorrow” from Jessica Frank with CBS Sunday Morning and she said:
I wanted to let you know that your yellow and black sun, which is SO cool, will appear on our Sunday Morning broadcast tomorrow, at the end of a story that we’re doing on Street Wear. It’s the perfect ending.
On Sunday morning June 23, 2019 the sun aired for the second time on the show at the end of the Street Wear Segment which you can see below.
The new LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, located in the Gordon Square Arts District on Cleveland’s west side, opened on June 14 and I’m so proud to have my art installed in this beautiful building designed by David Thal of WMF Architects. The work titled “Fifty Three Rhombuses” at 118″ x 56″ is printed on a composite aluminum panel and shaped by CNC router.
I’m honored to be a part of Summa Health’s new Healing Arts Collection for the new Patient Tower at the Akron campus. Special thank you to Meg Harris Stanton, curator – Summa Health Healing Arts Leadership Council, for selecting my work “Ninety One Kites” where it has been placed on the fifth floor across from the nurses station. Really like it’s location. Not only do patients and visitors benefit from the arts in healthcare, staff especially does so. Also, a special thank you to Christine Havice, Chair, Summa Health Healing Arts Leadership Council. With her background as an arts educator in art history, journalist, curator and consultant, she researched and wrote about each artist, artwork and the artists process. With dedicated web page’s for each, it’s a great resource to view and study the collection. Below is excerpt of what she wrote on my page:
After viewing this print, you may also find his reflections helpful in negotiating the visual arts world of today, where both digital and the older “analogue” techniques co-exist and often, as here and in certain other works of art in the Summa Collection, interpenetrate in new and exciting ways.
