Private Home+Public Art

Over the years I have used my garden in Capitol Hill in Washington for installations, often treating the front elevation of my home as a large painting support.  

The first Studies in Domination were political protests created under the guise of holiday decorations, such as Nightmare on Ninth and Happy Easter.  

In Cajun Christmas, I painted my house as if it had been inundated by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina, then sold the work by the square foot to benefit Louisiana artists.  

The Sky is Falling was a peripatetic painting that required the viewer to travel from my house to Warehouse Gallery downtown to see the entire work.  

Several years ago, I started the Private Home+Public Art Project to encourage other artists to use their homes and studios for the installation of public art.
