Next Friday marks the public opening of my collaborative portrait project with photographer partner Michael O’Shea at BAM. The show will be on display in BAM’s Diker Gallery through March. Having spent many of my formative professional years working at BAM, it feels amazing to be welcomed back in this capacity. In fact, many of the subjects in this project are friends, colleagues, and mentors that I encountered during my time at BAM, and later during my tenure at Pratt Institute--and some have ties to both institutions. We will be donating a percentage of proceeds from all sales towards the BAMart program and Pratt endowed scholarship funds to keep the spirit of this project moving full-circle.
