Tools of the Trade: A Residents View of Law Enforcement
As the Artist in Residence at the Oak Park Police Department from 2008-2012 I created conceptual art work based on the challenges and tools of law enforcement from a citizen's perspective. The purpose of the project is to understand the challenges faced every day by our law enforcement official and to create work in support of the department. I want to share the drawings with other communities so citizens can understand and appreciate these hard working professionals and support their mission to serve and protect.
More work available upon request.
Part of my residency also involved creating a small art space inside the lock down just for officers and staff. You can see the work of over 25 artists on line or if you ever have occasion to break the law in Oak Park, you can see the art in person.
