Mystic River Mural Project
   10' X 450'   Somerville, MA    [acrylic paint on MDO panels]
The Mystic River Mural Project began in 1996, when I worked with a group of high school students in Somerville to explore the wildlife, history, and environmental issues around the Mystic River watershed and then paint a large mural on panels that were installed on the concrete retaining wall for I-93. This became an ongoing project, resulting in an enormous mural about the watershed that is enlarged every summer with the work of new students.

The Water Science Mural
   12 ft. X 6 ft.   University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI    [Acrylic, directly on wall]
This mural is painted directly on a wall of a conference room at the Water Science and Engineering Lab at The University of Wisconsin. The theme is the study of water science including biology, hydrology, limnology, and chemistry. The image of the hands holding water in the shape of Lake Mendota evokes stewardship of water as a vital goal of science. It was funded by the Wisconsin Art Board, through the Percent for Art Program.

From Orchids to Octopi: the Evolution Mural
   10' X 28'   Central Square Theater, Cambridge, Massachusetts    [Acrylic on canvas panels]
This mural about Charles Darwin and Evolution, was created as part of a modular set for an Underground Railway Theater production of "From Orchids to Octopi: an evolutionary love story", which was written by Melinda Lopez. The mural features a large portrait of Darwin at the center, with images swirling around him that speak to the mechanisms of evolution and the variety of species of life resulting from it. Currently the mural is being exhibited at the new Northwest Science Building at Harvard University in Cambridge.
