My Recent Outdoor Work:
Muskegon Museum of Art 
With underwriting support from the Alcoa Foundation, 
the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, Deborah DeVoursney, 
and the city of Muskegon present:

an installation of handmade stones

It is hard to show the scale and beauty of the trees in Hackley Park in downtown Muskegon Michigan where Impossible is installed. Huge and lovingly maintained, the city trees show real history and an affection for place. 

The city of Muskegon has seen many shifts of fortune through the years, but lately there is a new optimism and vitality of spirit. The installation I created is a symbol of this fresh identity of success and renewal. The piece presents an image that is both delightful and startling. It is very much like the personality of Muskegon: lovely, passionate and determined.
 Impossible also got great press. The mlive article was picked up by AP and ran nationally!
