SoundCamp 2019

The beach and water park features at Miami’s Thompson Park are closed until renovation is complete, but the campground is still open! It’s here that Water Radio will present its first public program, a soundcamp to celebrate International Dawn Chorus Day.

This overnight, outdoor event is limited to 10 people. If you’re interested, please reserve your spot through Eventbrite. Learn more about it here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/water-radio-soundcamp-for-international-dawn-chorus-day-2019-tickets-60020795816

February events

I just returned from packing up my solo exhibit Who Saves Who? in North Carolina. I’m organizing the photos and video documentation, so I’ll plan to include a link in a future update. In the meantime, I want to let you know that I’m hosting two extra special events in the Miami area and I hope to see you at one or both.

Happy new year! I now have an email newsletter so that you can receive occasional updates. These will go out no more than once a month, probably less frequently than that. Thanks for your interest and all the best for 2019!

The Ellies!

I’m happy to announce that I have been chosen for one of The Ellies Awards in 2018! Some of the best things about this honor: meeting the other artists, reading about all the other projects, and knowing that a whole bunch of amazing new art work is going to come to life because of it. I’m so appreciative of the warm welcome into this community of creative people! Many thanks to the Art Center of South Florida for supporting Miami artists! #TheEllies
