Wordwraps: 2015-19

Project website with full documentation & credits: WordWrapBoston

WordWrap began as a public art project celebrating the diverse voices of Boston neighborhoods for Pop-Up: Franklin Park Art Grove.  I collaborated with Blanca Bonilla to create the 50 WordWraps for this group art exhibition & celebration in Franklin Park, Boston (2015).

I expanded the project to address different issues and involve communities outside Boston with exhibits in Concord, MA (2016), Sitka, AK (2017), Waterville, ME (2018), Gardiner, ME (2019) and Augusta, ME (2019). Documentation and designs can be viewed on the WordWrap website.

For the last two years, I focussed on  creating 22 new WordWraps  celebrating rivers, restoration and environmental advocacy in Maine as part of a summer public art project supported by Waterville Creates! in Waterville, Maine.

In 2019, I added new prints to WordWrap: Swimming Upstream and two sets of the exhibition were shown in Gardiner, Maine and Augusta, Maine starting in April and continuing through the September (in Augusta). I am grateful for the support of Kennebec Valley Chapter Trout Unlimited, Upstream, and Augusta Parks and Recreation for hosting and supporting this exhibition in Maine in 2019.

In 2017, I was thrilled for the opportunity to create the WordWrap sequence, Historical Reflections on The Law of the Land for the 2017 group exhibition “Voices of Change: Perspectives on the Transfer of Alaska from Russia to the United States” at the Sitka National Historical Park in Sitka, Alaska. 14 prints were on view along the walking trail and 1 print was shown inside the gallery.
