A mobile artwork presented at three venues: the VCA convention, Dominion Energy Center meeting of the Virginians for Art, and a private annual legislative reception in Richmond, VA, January 2020.
Attendees were asked to write a phase on a quote bubble that documented how they knew art was working for their communities. The bubbles were inserted into a large table map of the commonwealth of Virginia. The map was made of colored foam, with municipalities identified by color. On The reverse of each quote bubble was an outline of the state, on which the participants placed a small silver pearl to identify the location of their community.
Over 180 quotes were added to the map during the convention.
