Brainstorm (2007)

Brainstorm was facilitated in conjunction with the artists at the studios of Arts of Life, El Valor, Esperanza, and Project Onward as part of a larger exhibition, Minds Eye: Developmental Disabilities, Mental Illness, and Visual Art. These four Chicago organizations provide artist support services for developmentally disabled adults. The slats were painted and/or collaged with images and text by the participating artists in response (virtual and actual) to tornadoes. These flexible wood slats were then collaboratively woven into a large tornado-shaped iron rod armature.
