Esau Kessler who recently graduated from the Boise Public Art Academy was one of 17 entrants selected to participate in The Tiny Library project.
His team artist Anthony Emerson, and Fabricator Elizabeth Gilbertson submitted a concept titled “Grow” for a hut or gazebo located inside of one of the North End’s community gardens known as “The Downtown Teaching Farm.”
While the proposal was not funded, the panel was very positive on the concept. Esau intends to move the project forward now that there is approval from the garden. His firm Massive Happiness will be continuing the parametric modeling and design and a more complete proposal.
One of the initial concepts was a giant mecha warrior fabricated from milk crates with a topic specific SciFi library inside the stomach. However, this wasn’t really tiny, it was huge. 
The secondary mission of the “Grow” project is to install additional hut/gazeebos in the bench area to promote both community & literacy among the refugee community who often frequent the gardens.

45 hand signed and numbered prints of my diptych “Tessellate Mondrian” (wax & indian ink 30”x20”) are now available for purchase online. (The original is available for viewing here in Boise at my "New Eyes" exhibit) the Giclée prints done by Evermore Prints came out amazing! The frame ready sizing, high tooth thick cotton archival card stock, and vibrant color make these prints perfect for collecting. You can be one of the few who own a one of a kind art piece now http://mncr.tv/EsauPrints
