Park Grove hosted an artist talk to celebrate the debut new book of famed homegrown artist and author Michele Oka Doner, Intuitive Alphabet, released by TRA publishing. Over the course of her career Michele Oka Doner has created several important pieces of public art, including Radiant Site (1991), a groundbreaking tile installation in the New York subway system, and A Walk on the Beach (1995), a two-and-a-half-mile-long concourse at the Miami International Airport of dark terrazzo inlaid with bronze and mother-of-pearl. Guests were part of a captivating discussion between Michele and guest Alastair Gordon, centered around the topic of found objects as art. The evening also served as the first signing of Intuitive Alphabet. All guests received a personalized copy of the book.
