THE FORBIDDEN TREASURE

I'm super excited! THE FORBIDDEN TREASURE that I illustrated for a very talented Hmong author See Lor.

THE FORBIDDEN TREASURE

The Forbidden Treasure is an inspired Hmong folktale that teaches about kindness, humbleness, and greed. For her kindness, Pa Chia was taken to a forbidden treasure, unreachable and untouched by humans. When My Kue found out about Pa Chia’s secret, her greed got the best of her.

By See Lor
Illustrated by Kao Lee Thao

St. John’s Cantius Neighborhood Gateway Project








St. John’s Cantius Neighborhood Gateway
Site location
1740 St. Germain St. alongside Minnesota Highway 23

My vision is to create an obelisk gateway land marker inspired by the historical architecture that surrounds the community.

The steel structure is 12ft by 6ft. The color scheme is to enlighten the neighborhood throughout the year. As the seasons change the sculpture will always be bright and vibrant emitting positive energy. This is just the initial design to give you an idea of what the final sculpture will look like. As I attend community events and meet local community leaders the design will evolve and change.

For the community component I will organize a creative placemaking Brick Painting Event. The community will be able to participate by painting bricks and write inspirational words about what community means to them. All of the bricks painted by the community will be incorporated into the final landscape design. The sculpture will not just be a public art piece but it will symbolize our community. The community’s voice will be visible even from an aerial view.
