Open Eye Art is a partnership between two artists, Jennifer Mark and Juliet Moran. Open Eye Art specialized in bespoke art installations for businesses and organizations that wish to bring more creativity into our everyday lives. This performance was created for an evening event at the United Methodist 2016 Convention. Each of the portraits depict a story about a United Methodist Higher Education and Ministry related program.(graphic designs by Michelle Mark) Open Eye Art created the Vortex wind dance along with all the portraits and over 1,500 prayer ribbons.
