Bernstein Park Community Center on Stock Island in Key West, Florida, is the latest addition to my public art portfolio. It was commissioned by the Monroe County Art in Public Places Commission and was selected by a process of application, vetting, and qualifying the thematic material in my art for the mural. My mission was to emphasize the playfulness of the art for the enjoyment of children, while including examples of local interest for adults. I had to guarantee the durability of my media for a period of at least three years, so I chose to do the project as a giant fresco. I am currently exploring the possibilities of that technique in my art and this allowed me to use a medium that will last indefinitely.
