I'm working as a community engagement artist for the Morongo Basin Active Transportation Plan of San Bernardino County that is funded through the Southern California Association of Governments' Sustainability Grant Program.
The goal of the plan is to identify potential strategies and projects that will help make the Morongo Basin community a safer, more accessible and better connected place to walk and ride bikes. The region includes Twentynine Palms, Yucca Valley, Morongo Valley, Landers and the Joshua Tree National Park community.
As a part of this project, I am hosting community engagement activities in the Joshua Tree region to encourage community members to make paintings on wood, map drawings, and share stories about transportation in the area. Through the paintings, drawings and stories I will be creating two temporary way-finding installation sculptures in the local area.
