Oakwood Hospital Donor Wall ModelHonoring Life’s Gift

The challenge is to design a piece that will honor and celebrate life itself for the organ and tissue transplant recipients and their donors. I will use as many types of media available to a twenty-first century artist in inviting all who pass to share in the mystery of our collective humanity — glass, light, computer technology, along with more conventional materials — to invite all to offer their gifts.

Artistic communication embraces the human soul, as the sky does to a single bird at the dawn.

All who enter are invited to find the correlation in their own life experience.
