This Fall, Orange Barrel Industries (my collaborative duo with Blake Sanders) was juried as a top three finalist for a permanent art installation commission at the Barkley Regional Airport for their Feature Wall in the new airport terminal under construction 2022-23 in Paducah, KY. We attended a site visit, training, and put together a refined proposal with budget, community impact, and a sample artwork.

You can see our digital sketch and crochet sample as well as mockups of the proposed final piece, “Passage,” in the space below. The work was based on the local watershed surrounding the Paducah region.
