“Public art is collaboration at its best. While I am the creative driver behind all of my projects, it takes a huge team of people to create each installation,” shared Mark Reigelman.

Mark Reigelman is an internationally renowned, Brooklyn-based artist, specializing in site-specific installations and community-driven public art. His works, Manifest Destiny! (San Francisco, CA), White Cloud (Cleveland, OH), Wood-Pile (Cleveland, OH), Upriver-Downriver (Louisville, KY) and The Meeting House (Boston, MA) have been recognized by the Americans for the Arts as being amongst the 50 most compelling public works across the country.
