Community Art Online

Join us here on Sunday, May 6, to take part in an interactive art experience in collaboration with artist Andrew Kuo. Together, we’ll create images that explore the impact of 1,000,000. You can share these images on social media.

What Does 1,000,000 Look Like?

Andrew Kuo is known for creating colorful, abstract paintings out of language, numbers, and data. His art challenges the way we think about data presentation, and his interest in statistics and data sets made him the perfect partner for the All of Us Research Program.

Launch Event Artists

Liz Landgren
Artist: Birmingham, AL Launch Event
Liz Landgren

Liz Landgren is an artist from Birmingham, Alabama. She studied art and journalism at the University of Mississippi. Her love of the human form, faces, and storytelling is seen through her art, which tells a story and connects emotionally. Her painting 26 Angels, a response to the Sandy Hook tragedy, featured handwritten verses and prayers sent from all over the country and “collaged” into the gowns of the angels. It was featured on the award-winning series The Spirit of Alabama on WVTM-TV in Birmingham. The painting was sent to Newtown, and prints were sold, with the proceeds donated to the victims’ families.

Landgren paints with watercolor, acrylic, and heavy gel. She uses brushes and palette knives and prefers painting on wood artist’s panels. She is also a printmaker and carves her own rubber stamps. Her stamps of Birmingham landmarks have been printed on t-shirts and are sold locally and online. Her stamps of quirky animals have enjoyed a following of their own.

Landgren is most known for the big faces that she paints on wood panels.

Landgren’s faith in Christ is her driving force, and she credits her talent as a gift from God. “Who can give themselves talent?” she asks. “It is clearly a gift that no person should boast in themselves. Once I recognized this, I began to truly enjoy this gift and be more free with it! Free to give things away, free to be in awe of art that flows from me, but serves a higher purpose. It’s a really humbling and joy-filled experience!”

Landgren lives in Birmingham with her husband and their three children.

Doris Wasserman
Artist: Nashville, TN Launch Event
Doris Wasserman

Doris Wasserman grew up in Canada near the country’s largest set of First Nations rock carvings. She felt a deep human bond to those who carved symbols into some of the oldest rocks on Earth. She now lives and works as an artist in Nashville.

Her current work is rooted in her early enthrallment with mark making and symbols. She also tries to connect with viewers through the marks she makes. As she paints, she builds layer upon layer, creating a story within the painting. Washes of color and instinctive marks made with graphite, charcoal, brushes, sticks, and utensils are featured in her work.

A few years ago, she began a new art journey. She shifted to abstract painting. She also started gaining acclaim. The Arts and Business Council of Greater Nashville’s “Periscope” program chose her as a 2015 artist entrepreneur. She won the top award for her talk. Afterward, she was invited to present it to the Wichita Chamber of Commerce. Recently, she was awarded a “Flying Solo” show at Nashville International Airport. Her work toured Israel and the southeastern United States.

Wasserman began in research, design, and illustration. She worked for museums, galleries, and colleges in Canada and the United States. She was a medical artist at Vanderbilt University. She also worked as an artist at the Cumberland Science Museum.

She is an activist for the Nashville arts community. She also advocates for arts education.
