"Urban Warriors" Exhibit at Columbus State

Told you I would try and recap some highlights from 2009, well one stand out for me was the November exhibit at Columbus State Community College.

Here's an excerpt from my artist statement, "...there are Urban Warriors fighting on behalf of others who are in need. The needs are all different and the battle is daily. Some battle to keep our children off the streets, while others care for elderly parents, raise grand kids, visit the sick and tutor to name just a few things. The Urban Warriors exhibition was created as a means of addressing and thanking those individuals who give tirelessly of themselves throughout the year but seldom are recognized. These warriors are not celebrities but everyday people who never receive news coverage or medals. They do what they do because it's their hearts desire and they see a need which they quietly fill".
