Example 1:  The Puzzle Project at the Hampton GM Conference in Orlando, FL puzzle_hampton600e The Puzzle Team organized, photographed/archived, curated, assembled and installed approximately 1400 artistic puzzle pieces created by Hampton Hotel employees from around the world. The Puzzle Team also facilitated puzzle art making and helped Hampton GM’s find their own puzzle pieces among the many on display. puzzle_hamptonhang600 Each Hampton hotel location made puzzle art about their hotel, staff’s “Hamptonality” and a little local flavor. The artwork was inspiring. Hampton Management, GM’s, participating agencies and partnering groups were proudly pointing out and discussing their puzzle piece and how and why it was created.  Each GM sent pictures back to their staff that collaborated to create the artistic puzzle piece. puzzle_hampton600z puzzle_hampton600c The Art is Good Puzzle Team: puzzle_tk2014

The Keegan Theatre in Washington DC hosted an Art is Good Puzzle Making Workshop. The eclectic building in Dupont Circle was buzzing with creative energy. Folks in theatre business understand how to express themselves, so the puzzle project came naturally to them. After the matinee performance of “Working,” artists sat together on stage or alone in seats and made puzzle art.  They exhibited their collaborative art in the theatre lobby. puzzle_keegan_5puzzle_keegan_7
