The project Everyday Monuments celebrates the unsung heroes of our society whose everyday labors go unrecognized.  Starting with donated sports trophies, the artist transformed each figure’s sports pose into the unsensational, yet distinctive gestures of work.  Each set of altered trophies becomes a small tribute to people who deliver packages, vacumm, shovel, sew, etc. each day.
