This project was funded by a grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council (SMAC) and was created during the National Windsurfing championships at the 15th Annual Windsurfing Regatta and Unvarnished Music Festival.
The goals of the artwork were to celebrate the diversity of worthington, MN. Thru many festivals, activities and people throughout the community, this mural was created to embrace and showcase all that worthington has to offer.
The collaborative process was definitely vital in the creation of this mural. Working with the project director, site director and myself, we created a concept that would showcase the town in all its glory and energy

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
