I will be an Ideascity New Orleans Fellow as part of the New Museum’s Ideascity New Orleans this April! I’ve very excited to have received a design grant to prototype and present a new iteration of my Solar Cart—a portable structure used to power living artworks through renewable energy—expanding upon my recent public installation, Terraforming in the Anthropocene, at New Orleans’s Grow Dat Youth Farm in 2018. This design component of IdeasCity is supported, in part, by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Protect What You Love" screenprint, $25
I made a limited-edition run of screenprints to support the No Bayou Bridge Coalition. 100% of proceeds from this print go to support the L'eau Est La Vie resistance camp to the Bayou Bridge Pipeline #noBBP
