SMALL TOWNS
ARE FOR BIG IDEAS

           OPEN SPACES
NEVER CLOSE

 
   
Mark

The role of the citizen artist is to discern, nurture, cultivate, and encourage the existing culture of a place.


I am a place-based itinerant artist with an emphasis on cultural empowerment in rural and under-recognized communities. I believe in small towns, long winters, optimists, parades, and talking about feelings. Everything is better when we do it together.

I work with lots of friends, in many different places. My life-long collaborators include Cabin-Time, Camp Little Hope, M12 Studio, Art of the Rural, Common Field, Springboard for the Arts, and the United States Postal Service.
