The fascinating artistic process of Deborah Faye Lawrence's collage practice is featured in a one minute segment of Art Zone with Nancy Guppy on the Seattle Channel, April 2011.

On March 16, 2011, Deborah F. Lawrence joined artists Pam Keeley, Kevin Wildermuth, Stevie Webb, Ellen Ito, and Linda Davidson to work on a 20 x 35-foot collaborative mural in a student lounge at University of Washington, Tacoma. Using paint, collage, drawing and stencils, and with no strategic plan, they set out to visually document "bipartisanship": the idea that disparate entities can coexist, and flourish, if work is undertaken with the intention of doing so. The artists visually addressed hot topics of the day: President Obama, the nuclear disaster at Fukushima, the Tea Party, the people's movement in Wisconsin, greed, hierarchy, nurturance, and the interconnectedness of all things. The mural was completed May 14, and is open to the public. Location: BHS Student Lounge, University of Washington, Tacoma., on Pacific Ave, upstairs above the University Bookstore.
