The Traveling Show: public art tour since 2013

The Traveling Show is a long-term socially engaged project to rural South communities. The Traveling Show is a way to create an invitation through welcoming gestures that then encourages people to imagine more good could happen, while examining real and tough issues. The work launched in 2013, and is entirely free and public. *
