My course, Experiments in Art and Social Practice, collaborated with the department of Public History and Greensboro’s International Civil Rights Museum to develop socially engaged projects and a multimedia print installation for the series “States of Incarceration”. As artists, we brought students and community together and created dialogue about social justice and the future state of mass incarceration.
Throughout my tenure with UNCG, I have developed research that directly engages the public and collaborates with local institutions. This summer I worked with Adam Carlin and Lawrence Jenkens to build the (GPS) Greensboro Project Space. This downtown space bridges UNCG’s School of Art and the community in downtown Greensboro and provides opportunities for students and faculty from across the university to experiment together and directly engage the public.
