My public art project Keep Hope Alive Alive is part of the Art in Odd Places Festival.  I'm distributing free buttons to pedestrians.  Below is one of ten designs:

"This is an altered graphic from a vintage Jesse Jackson political button. Jackson made bids for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination in 1984 and 1988. The orignial button reads 'Run Jesse Run!'."

This new piece  - "John Brown's Folly" -  is made from bed sheets, pillowcases, and shoelaces.  It is based on the rope used to hang John Brown.  More about this sculpture, and the show at St. Paul the Apostle Church, in this article.
