Rotto Grotto chosen to represent Iowa for the National Christmas Tree display in Washington D.C

I'm a bit late in posting this, but this past holiday season I was very honored to be the chosen artist to represent the state of Iowa on the Pathway of Peace Tree as part of the National Christmas Tree display in between the White House and the Washington Monument. Thank you to the Iowa Arts Council for all of their support. You can read their article here

My PechaKucha presentation "Rock Solid Dreams"

I did a PechaKucha presentation about my project a few months ago called "Rock Solid Dreams". If you aren't familiar with PechaKucha, it is basically a presentation format that restricts you to twenty slides and 20 seconds to talk about each side. It's amazing how it forces you to be concise!  I did this presentation before I knew where the bathtubs were going to go-I was actually feeling a little lost about the project at the time, but I'm so glad I went ahead with the presentation because I made some important connections there. If you're curious about the origins and inspiration for this project I explain it all here. Some of the slides are missing from the middle here unfortunately but they do come back.
