Arts Advocacy Day at the Vermont State House

On March 15th 2018, I conducted an interactive Rangoli performance at the Vermont State House for Arts Advocacy Day. The Vermont Arts Council hosted a day-long Rangoli workshop, to which Vermont legislators were invited to take a few moments of respite and indulge in some Rangoli making. As the day progressed, the Rangoli grew, creating a beautiful and calming atmosphere in the midst of a demanding and hectic day at the Statehouse.

Arts Connect Exhibition at BCA

The Integrated Arts Academy residencies culminated in a wonderful exhibition which opened on Thursday May 22nd, at the BCA Center, Burlington VT. All artworks will be exhibited for one week only. There was a formal opening, with introductions by Judy Klima, Arts Coach at the IAA and Melissa Steady, Education Director at BCA. It was a fabulous event and included the work of students in KG through to 2nd grade.
The exhibited work integrated science, social studies, math and literacy with the visual arts.
