This section includes, an article written for Public Art Review magazine, an interview with me about Creative Time titled "The City as Gallery", a sample lecture for Public Art Admin 101, a class I taught at New York University, and a gallery of images from a few projects I produced at Creative Time between 1984 - 1997.
When I was still in graduate school in Atlanta I organized a number of shows and projects in disused spaces for myself and other artists. My first job in NYC was working for a small scrappy architectural firm that had won a bid to redesign 12 subway stations in the MTA transit system. Each station was required to include an artist project as part of the design and it was my responsibility to curate artists and manage their proposals for the mandated Percent for Art Program.
From there I went on to work with Creative Time producing hundreds of temporary art projects in all disciplines around the city of New York including the flagship programs Art on the Beach, Art in the Anchorage, and Art on 42nd Street. During this time I lectured, taught, and wrote articles on time based and temporary public art.
