Bailey will be living and working in Lanesboro September 6 – 20 as an artist in residence at Lanesboro Arts. The mosaic panels completed during her residency will be installed on the recently refurbished boarded windows & door on the Coffee Street side of the Pedal Pushers building (121 Parkway Ave N).

Bailey has worked as a mosaic artist since 2007, beginning with a Community program for young adults called Artswork, based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. In her four years with Artswork, she experienced working as an individual, and as a group, to bring art to underutilized spaces around the Twin Cities through large scale mosaic murals.
She is a graduate of Luther College in Decorah and is a former Marketing Communications Coordinator with Hennepin Theatre Trust, working to promote the Trust‘s downtown placemaking initiative, Made Here. In 2016, Bailey led the collaborative creation of a mosaic mural installed on the façade of the Orpheum Theatre, along with a vertical garden. She also has glass mosaics installed within businesses in Decorah.
