Mobilizing Our Community
Transform How You Connect with Your Community
Picture hundreds of your community’s residents – children, adults, seniors of every race, background and ability – coming together. Picture them working side-by-side in community centers, schools, churches, and businesses to conceive and create hundreds of colorful pieces. Imagine all of these pieces connecting into a spectacular public art installation of high-flying colorful moving sculptures.
Residencies often include working with schools for students to gain skills in art, math and physics by designing small models or maquettes that can inspire the larger mobile designs.

Then imagine, after the mobiles have soared together in a public space, all the mobiles are given back to the community, reinstalled individually at businesses, senior centers, hospitals and schools. Picture each participating organization with a sign on their door that says: “We’ve been mobilized!” Imagine your community filled with joyful, tangible reminders of many parts coming together to make an inspiring new whole.
Kevin works with presenters and sponsors to design the most impactful residency for your locale.

“These mobiles are the sum of their parts, but the parts are more than foam core and wire. The parts include the collective yearnings for communal expression — a non-verbal, non-competitive collaboration to envision and shape something beautiful, something that transcends an individual’s hands and self, something that enlarges our possibilities.”
