Current projects include a work funded by San Francisco Arts Commission consisting of 35-foot high trapeze artists. La Lucha Continua/The Struggle Continues; a mural located in the Mission features 35 portraits of activists, philosophers and artists and their recorded voices accessible via cell phone.
