Street Art Project in Annapolis, MD

Hey everyone,

Sorry I about not having an update the past couple of months, but I have been damn busy with art projects and have not had much time to just sit and be. Lucky for you I have a headache today and have time to write an update and what an update it will be!

I had the honor of being asked to help design and implement a street art project here in Annapolis, MD on a 7 ft tall fiberglass chicken!

Seems the local arts council allowed a group to place the decorated chickens all around West street, and my kiddo's school had a chicken sitting around since last May, which needed a little direction to fully hatch. So, I accepted the invitation to participate and here is how it turned out in photos!

We had 157 children and all the staff participate by adding an international flag to the bird. It is the only bird within the project to have that level of participation. MICH stands at nearly 8 ft tall with his Mohawk and has traveled the world at least twice, based on his passport stamps and flag collection.

His Mohawk spells MICH in nautical flags, to pay honor to the Annapolis area. MICH is indeed one of the most colorful birds on the block, and we are all very pleased with the way it turned out. 

MICH is currently standing outside of the Metropolitan Restaurant on West Street in Annapolis, MD. It is the coolest thing artistically I have ever done!
