In fall 2009, I was invited to do community murals in the Russian cities of Krasnoyarsk and St. Petersburg by CEC ArtsLink
, an organization that facilitates artist exchange projects between the United States and Russia/Central Asia. In Krasnoyarsk, I spent a week working with a master class of teen and young adult artists to create a mural at a local public school. In St. Petersburg, I spent three weeks working with students at a public school for the deaf and hearing impaired to create a portable wall installation in mixed media.
