@finding_a_line is a culmination of projects by Sculpture Faculty, Ben Ashworth.
Ben curates and builds ongoing community sourced public art projects that combine skateboarding, education, construction, music, media, and visual art as a socially-engaged platform. As a process, he invites artists and community members to weekly interactive, spontaneous sessions where their combined energies and diverse backgrounds enrich the developing art spaces. His work has been featured at the Kennedy Center, Yale, and more!
Ben’s community art practice has been the subject of various publications, including NPR, McSweeney’s, the Washington Post, Jazz Times, BBC, ARTnews, JUICE, Landscape Architecture, and National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
