I spent September 2015 in Lucerne, Switzerland via the CLAER Program, as a Cultural Ambassador for Chicago Sister Cities International (CSCI). I returned to Lucerne (French spelling) —or Luzern (German spelling)— in April and September 2022 to collaborate with resident artist Jonas Raeber for the program’s 20th Anniversary celebration.
