Inspired by Polish Hospitality

The collection I created along my RSA journey reflects my evolving spiritual and artistic expressions rooted in asset-based community development (ABCD), which sees the world as a place of abundance instead of scarcity. 

Coming out of this journey, I am bringing forward several pieces of work as The Community Well in 5D as part of the The Religion, Spirituality, and the Arts (RSA) program of the IUPUI Arts and Humanities. I’ll be joined by several other artists from our RSA2022 cohort at The Harrison Center next month!

Several of my works build on work from other artists in a collaborative way.

I loved the story behind Katie Ito​’s beggar bowl titled “Is There a Place for Me at Your Table?” With her permission, I’ve created a repurposed display of this beggar’s bowl in the context of my larger installation.

Katie’s story reminded me of my Polish grandmother’s tradition to set an extra place at the table for the unannounced guest. This has taken on a deeper significance in light of the outpouring of Polish hospitality during the current war in Ukraine.

I will premiere a behind the scenes look on opening night at 6pm. Join me on YouTube — or even better, be there in person!⁠

Come to the First Friday event at The Harrison Center on Friday April 1 from 6-9pm to see how I’ve used Katie’s inspiration!

I see life as full of possibilities and the world full of beautiful people possessing unique and often untapped talents. I’m a learner and connector, seeking ways to leverage the abundance in this world through strong community.
