I ride with Team 26 for Peace, Hope, and Love. 

As an artist and a teacher, I was deeply troubled by the tragedy of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and was moved to create a participatory art project a few months later dealing with gun violence in the US:

Le Petite Morte

This project chronicles the deaths by gun violence in the US since the shootings at the Sandy Hook elementary school on December 14, 2012. 

This project took place from March 18 - April 19, 2013. More than 3000 balloons, each with the name, age, and date of death of a shooting victim inside, filled the gallery. During the reception on April 2, 2013, viewers used straight pins to pop all of the balloons. The gallery was left with the detritus of the balloons and names on the floor. New balloons were added in the remaining two weeks of the exhibition as more shooting deaths were recorded.
