Although 2020 was an unusual, confusing, complicated and controversial year, it was also a good year for thinking about how we do things, how much we drive every day and how to spend more time outside.
I enjoyed returning home to Wyoming summer and working on the greenhouse and garden and diving into creating and designing more Science Loves Art Kits. The Kits were developed in 2018 as a vehicle for getting art and science out to isolated and rural communities. With Covid, EVERYONE became isolated. I have to say that providing isolated people a way to relax and enjoy art and explore the science of art has been a great joy in 2020.
2020 was a year of devotion to Science Loves Art, the nonprofit that I founded years ago. I hope that 2021 will be a year for me, as an artist, to finish up some projects (finishing by BFA in May!) and tackle some new art. Continuing with the NSF/Wyoming EPSCoR grant will continue to be inspiring as we roll out more exhibits and science from this project!
I’m looking forward to a more normal life in 2021. No more sabbaticals, no more home buildings or remodels, no more big projects! I’m going to do what normal people do. Enjoy my garden, ride my bike to tennis, go on long hikes and gather inspiration for my art, organize my metalsmithing tools, create more concrete sculptures and organize my welding space.
If you are interested in checking out some of the Kits I’ve developed over the years, check out the online shop at 4th Street Studios where you will find the work and art that keeps me busy every day.
