Preview of coming attractions: I’m adding this here for #SXSL at the@whitehouse, which many others would deserve to attend more than me, but still, it’s worth a shot, so I’m nominating myself:
This is the 50+2 project, a work in progress. As a professional designer, local @AIGAdesign chapter president, and map lover I’m combining my #art and#design skills with my love of #maps to create and release something positive about our country during a contentious and bizarre election year.
I believe it’s important to acknowledge and advocate for the value of art and design when support for it in public schools is always in peril. I also believe that geographic knowledge must be part of everyday education. This project is tagged#50_plus_2 and it involves creating and posting multi-media art pieces every week of 2016 for each U.S. state (and then some). It will be completed at the end of this year.
