A-Town Get Down: Kehoe Remix

I have been fortunate enough to have a hand in creating this large scale, up-cycled, collaborative fibers wall that hung on the fence during the 2014 A-Town Get Down at the Morris Center in Savannah, GA. The work was conceived and led by artist katherine sandoz, and completed by a team of multi-talented creatives, including: 

katherine sandoz, Anita Akella, Emily Chao, Cecily Charles, Alyssa Drennen, Marcella Frankil, Jesse Jordan, Bartira Lobo, Vincent Mccraw, Hale RardinBenazir TorresAutumn Van Gunten, and myself.
