I am delighted to have been selected to contribute to Penn State’s new public art campus initiative. I’ll be working with the Penn State Abington community to produce a temporary installation on it’s woodland campus in the fall of 2019.
UNIVERSITY PARK, PA – The Campus Arts Initiative (Campus Arts), a project of Penn State’s Strategic Planning Seed Grant program, has announced the first eight artist collaborators, which were selected from the more than 158 applicants who responded to a national open call.
Campus Arts is a cross-disciplinary project that aims to create site-specific visual art to engage communities in the spaces where they live and work every day. Eight partner locations across the Commonwealth were identified in January and the selected artists have each been paired with one of the high-impact locations from which they will take inspiration for the artwork. Project installations will begin in fall 2019. The project allows the site partners to work closely with the artists throughout the process to develop installations that connect to each space. The final selected artists visited the partner sites in May and were able to gain a deeper understanding of each location.
