I am exploring Germany by way of the Euro-rail, my journey started on July 23rd, where I boarded the  train from Frankfurt, to Ramstein. Since 2009 I have visited the Rheinland-Pfalz, Center for Documentation and Exhibition of the History of the US Americans in the Rhinelnad Palatinate www.dc-ramstein.de, this years exhibition focus is on Mein Ami, 60 ea of U.S. Air Force in Rheinland Pfalz, 1952 to 2012.

The installation gave me some ideas on how to present a research project I am working on for the African American Historical and Cultural Museum in Fresno California, and Fresno Public Library Genealogical Society. Several desk are stationed around the museum for visitors to journal, and record their voice to history.


 I also visited the garden dedicated to President John F. Kennedy, before boarding the city bus to Kaiserslautern where I stopped in on an art gallery, to chat with a couple of artists. While working in my studio in the village of Meinabach I finished art I started in 2011, which concludes my series.




On Sunday September 19th I will be making my way to Sype to the studio of Rolf Schuetzez, ATelier ARtefact, to join Marianna, Renee, and Alan for a intensive self directed residency, creating artwork for exhibition in Pankow, and for Chicago Artists Month 2012.
