"Stories from the Florida Panhandle" is an essay with a series of collages by Falon Mihalic published in the most recent issue of Tempor Magazine. Digital and print copies of the magazine along with limited edition prints of the collages are available here.
Falon Mihalic and Ross Wienert won a Let Creativity Happen! Grant as part of the city’s initiative to support “innovative ideas that redefine artistic boundaries”. The project is an interactive sculpture that responds to the weather environmental conditions and will be installed along the Columbia Tap Rail Trail in Houston’s Third Ward. Using programmed LED lights, the work will respond to Houston’s weather variations in temperature, light, and rainfall as it changes over the course of several months. This project is funded in part by the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance. Read More

Grounding: Paintings and Sculptures by Falon Mihalic now on view at m Architects Gallery. 1206 Nance Street, Houston Texas.

I find it deeply satisfying to emulate the earth and express it here in the form of paintings and sculptures. Read More
The Baltimore City Public Art Commission approved FGLA’s public art concept for an interactive Periscope tower and plaza at the intersection of Central Avenue and Pratt Street.

The Periscope’s angled mirrors will make it possible for people walking by to see elevated views of the neighborhood. Its color, form, and integrated plaza are inspired by local waterways, including City Springs, Harford Run, and the Patapsco River. The 25’ tall Periscope will be constructed of cast-in-place concrete, colored plexiglass supported by a welded frame, and surrounded by a plaza of.... Read More
