This piece on exhibit at UMDNJ in Woody's is a copy of the original which was featured in “The Book of World Hope”, by Birgitta Jonsdottir, Iceland. It has been to Lincoln Center, NY as part of the Flower Show in conjunction with the Guild of Creative Art, Shrewsbury, NJ and it was an installation at the South Brunswick Public Library Children’s Department till it was lost during remodeling. (Birgitta is now working at saving Iceland and Blind Dolphins!) - The Amazing Adventures of Joy B



What’s Art?” Was the question posed by the Citizen School, New Brunswick, NJ and the piece created during a twelve week apprenticeship continues to answer all the way from Shirley Boys’ High School, Christchurch, New Zealand
