RECLAIM / The House Poem Project

On December 6, 2017, I and my creative co-lead Phyllis Boyd were awarded an Art Place America National Creative Placemaking Award. This award funded the RECLAIM Project, which seeks to use art as a vehicle to transform urban blight into beauty and community opportunity by addressing vacant properties, alternative economic opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals and youth development.
