It was such an exciting pleasure when my friend, and curator extrodinaire Diego Cortez, invited me to do a work for the Luciano Benetton Collection in Italy. This was my first chance to exhibit and disseminate something from my new project which involves repurposing old road maps. This was a perfect fit, because the project was about Louisiana and my hometown of New Orleans.

My work along with a long list of stellar New Orleans artists' work, was exhibited at The New Orleans Museum of Art in 2014. The whole project, titled "Reparation" , was also reproduced in a beautiful hard bound catalogue.
