Value the artist

Collaboration with Mildura artist and sign writer Terry (Moose) McGowan of McGowan Signs, Mildura VIC, Australia. Over a 10 day residency, Moose and I worked together developing two installations that responded to the pre-election economic and social climate in Australia. Value the Artist was a direct response to the recent arts funding cuts

Residency proudly supported by the The Art Vault and McGowan Signs. Special thanks to Mildura City for the wall!
