I finished the PS 58 residency with the second graders on February 25, 2009. A community was built. Garbage became art. Something to value rather than throw away. Shout to all the students I met at PS 58. Love Nature and yourselves. It’s all connected.

Hotel


Pizza Place


Gamestop


Apartment building


What’s this going to be?


The student's community grew quickly.

It looks like all involved had a great time. I bet you left more than a few kids with real inspiration to pursue lives in the creative arts.

Thanks, Michael.

Candles. incense and pranams to the art teachers who work at this alot harder than I ever will. I come in quickly to make an impact. The teachers do all the slow work to nurture real transformation. Love them.
