“Iconic Views at OSU” Series, #1: Participates in OSU student exhibit, while fundraising in support of student project
The first annual juried student art exhibit at Oregon State University's- new Beth Ray Academic Success Center, will host a reception on the 4th Friday- January 24th, from 4 to 6 pm. By participating as student, professional artist and arts advocate in this first annual art show, my work in a new series called, “Iconic Views at OSU”, kicks off two more exhibitions for this series. These consecutive exhibits will happen spring 2014 in another OSU campus location, and again later in the year in the Corvallis community. By participating in this juried show at the Beth Ray Academic Success Center, the “Iconic Views at OSU” art image series goals are- to advocate on behalf of the benefits of re-integrating the arts back into our educational experiences, first by asking the viewer to take the time to look at the work. As an original art work it serves to both raise awareness about looking, and to raise funds in support of my student project called, the ARt project. the ARt project is a new arts access prototype mobile application tool with a content model that engagingly furthers evidence-based observation skills, as we all seek to participate effectively in our expanding monitor-centered reality. You can “Find” the ARt project, “Like” the ARt project, and follow the ARt project's 2014 fund raising developments and exhibition participation, on Facebook, by clicking on this link: ARt project- Accessing culture, connecting community. You can also find the new BRC next door to the new OSU Bookstore- both are located just north of the CH2M Alumni Center. This exhibit will hang until June; and meanwhile I look forward to seeing you there on the 24th!
