Jan-May 2012

Kent Bellows Center

Mentored a group of five Highschool youth from the Omaha area on the concept of an Artist Cooperative.  This included trips within our community to art based centers and speaking with practicing artists about the idea of an artist co-op.  This culminated in the formation of our own co-op named "Inception" we produced collaborative work together which was showcased in the Kent Bellows Student Show.
