  1. I got a chance to see the art as it was being installed yesterday–very beautiful! Be sure to allow time to leisurely visit the narthex and enjoy.

  2. This is a wonderful opportunity to view activist art in action! I’m looking forward to this! Thank you to New Branches and Lake Nokomis Lutheran for inviting the artist and creating a New Branches event!

  3. Loving the community, free to express pieces adoring the walls. Open to add creative expressions in tactile form. Yarn, fabric, markers, safety pins to fasten intertwined threads, marking pens in open plates for all to perform. Peaceful, beautiful, art-filed collaboration.
