BIRDS OF A DIFFERENT FEATHER  Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN,

Options for streetscape art were explored with the community, as were sites along a 10 block stretch of Nicollet Avenue. My partner on this project, Ben Janssens, and I developed the theme “birds of a different feather, flock together” to honor the diversity of the neighborhood.  Ceramic mosaic wings were made with the community, and artist, Lori Greene.

Two tall gateway features, 4 bird benches, and 6 bird stools animate the street, and were dedicated in 2016.
