It was a buzzy feeling, setting up my images, snacks and a few belongings in the Helen Frankenthaler Cottage. This was going to be the shortest residency I’d ever done. A single day.
In addition to my regular duties as Associate Professor of Animation and 3D Design at Ramapo College of New Jersey, I’ve started to reach out to educators and artists in different ways. I believe strongly in the concept of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). Artists have always been innovators and inventors.
The Greening: 209 evokes different moments in time: present, future, and past. In the U.S. a house or other building may last a generation or more. The systems we design to guide us as a society outlive us all, though they are not permanent either. How do we know if the structures we put in place are working? How long does the long view need to be if we are going to plan accordingly? It’s time to remodel.
This year I curated the work of 17 very talented students graduating from Ramapo College of New Jersey’s Visual Arts program.
The Blended Learning programs are available free of charge to artists who apply and are selected to participate, thanks to the generous supporters of The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and Gallery Aferro.
