In March 2017 I proposed my project, Utica Tracings to the Utica Urban Renewal Agency. Utica Tracings is an elaboration on my earlier project Trace a planting of 3,000 narcissus bulbs on the prior house foundations of five demolished homes that once stood on Whitesboro Street. Trace is situated on Sculpture Space grounds. In contrast, Utica Tracings will take place in other parts of this West Utica neighborhood. In March I requested permission from the Utica Urban Renewal agency to plant additional narcissus bulbs on the former house sites that once stood on Columbia Street that are owned by the Utica Urban Renewal Agency. So far, they expressed interest in granting permission and we will be firming things up soon. The Observer Dispatch featured a story on the project, "Area Artist Plants Seeds of History"
