Preparing for New Exhibitions

We’re getting ready at the museum for the next exhibition openings. On one side of our first floor we have the light and bright gallery for our Faculty Art Exhibition 2008-09. Time to see just how good our ASU instructors are! (hint: they’re fabulous!)

On the other side, the blacked out gallery for Nadia Hironaka’s The Late Show. This is unusual for us to do, but her setting of an abandoned drive-in theater requires blocking out all that light. With full surround sound and multi-channel video, this is something you don’t want to miss.

Opening reception is Friday October 17, 7-9pm. As always, it’s all free and open to the public. The last one was a great party with about 600 people, so don’t miss the next one!
(Both exhibitions run through January 25.)

Jurying in Utah

Spiral Jetty, 2008

Spiral Jetty, 2008

I have just returned from Salt Lake City where I was invited by the Utah Arts Council to be a juror for the Statewide Annual Competition and Exhibition, which is scheduled to open October 17 at the Rio Gallery.  The quality and number of works submitted to the call made the process extremely enjoyable.  I departed for Salt Lake City a few days early, making an extended weekend with my wife and two month old son.  On Sunday we ventured up to Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty, so I thought I would share the view.  Apparently, as you can see from the image, my wife and I enjoyed the experience a bit more than our son!
