“My work starts from emotional sensations that I try to describe physically.” – Jeannine Harkleroad

In 2022, prior to the Grand Illumination parade in downtown Norfolk, VA, Jeannine presented “I’ve Been Meaning To Ask You. I’ve Been Meaning To Tell You”, an interactive public art project created with her art students at Granby High School in Norfolk, VA. The portable, listening theater seated two people encouraged to start a secret conversation. One asks a question, one answers and the audience and those waiting their turns enjoyed popcorn as if inside of a movie theater. The idea is initiating a private exchange to encourage one another to share something they’ve never told or asked the other person before.
