After months of planning and creating, the night finally arrived and us 10 grantees presented our artwork to the public on May 9.

Was I a bundle of nerves? Was this one of the best evenings of my life? Was everything a blur and happened way too fast? Am I still trying to wrap my head around the positive response? Am I excited to continue to visit my installation, care for the plants, and witness people adding their thoughts, feelings, and drawings to the inside walls? Am I full of gratitude for being part of all of this? Do I look forward to conversations, ideas, questions, creations that will grow out of this…?


Those are all the words I have for now. I’ll let the photos speak…
