Blessing Doves is a public intervention project where small palm sized porcelain doves are placed randomly throughout various cities as a gift to those who discover them and choose to take. Each dove is prayed over while being made and before being placed for the person who finds it. Digital photos are taken of each location for documentation, the aesthetic pleasure of the placement composition, and accumulated for a future book and exhibition. To date, 16 locations have been blessed – San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Santa Fe New Mexico, Alamosa Colorado, Boston, Chicago, Miami, Seattle, New Orleans, Rochester NY, Denver, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Portland and Minneapolis. St. Paul will be next in June 2009. There are also a number of random placements done on quick trips and by volunteers. See link for full library of photos.
