Twenty years ago, the seed for a global arts project, Mighty Fingers Facing Change, was planted in artist Kelly Sullivan’s mind. As her signature method of painting with hundreds to thousands of people gained increasing media coverage in the collaborative arts, an even larger project loomed in her mind, one that would connect not just large groups, but disparate communities from around the world.
The studio is often open and visitors are always welcome. The dates above are dates Kelly is guaranteed to be there and likely serving wine.
“Sullivan has made a tremendous career by enlisting people to paint with their fingers. A long list of national brands have commissioned FingerSmears™ to commemorate events around the country, such as the U.S. Open and the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations.”

“…she captured the essence of a young girl lost in her own private thoughts, her long auburn hair caught in the gentle breeze.”
