Insight Bowl 2009

For all you sports fans, the Insight Bowl is coming to Sun Devil Stadium on December 31, 2009!

Lucky for competing teams’ fans, too, because they’re from some pretty chilly places – Iowa and Minnesota, to be exact. Welcome to the desert! I’m thinking our 60-degree weather is positively balmy for you guys.  While you’re here, we hope you’ll take advantage of all the great stuff to do, including coming over to Mill Ave and coming to see the museum, ’cause there’s nothing wrong with a little culture in between games and parties (especially when said culture is Free!)

There’s a nice article here from Iowa’s Gazette Online of things to do while you’re in town, or just head to the Tempe CVB site for ideas, too.

For the locals reading this – all those people who’ll soon be wandering about in t-shirts and shorts aren’t crazy. They’re just football fans.

JFMLS starts its season!

The Jan Fisher Memorial Lecture Series is named in honor of Jan Fisher, an art history graduate student and active CLA (Ceramics Leaders of ASU) member who passed away in February 2006.  The lecture series brings to the Phoenix community both established and emerging women ceramic artists.  This series is made possible through the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Cole Fisher and their family.

Tomorrow evening Annabeth Rosen will start off this season’s lecture series at 7pm at the Coor Building Room 120 at Arizona State University.  She will talk about her fascinating work and ceramic techniques and process.  After the lecture there will be an informal reception at the Ceramics Reseach Center where you can chat with the artist, see the fabulous ceramics collection in open storage and experience the Midstream: New Ceramics from the Heartland installation currently on exhibit.  It will be a wonderful evening, I hope to see you there!

Video Project Space @ Aqua Art Miami

As I return from paternity leave for the birth of my son I thought I would send an update on some recent activities.  I was contacted in April and invited by one of the directors of Aqua Art Miami, one of the major art fairs that take place in Miami the first weekend of December (this year Dec. 2-7), to curate a video project space for their Wynwood location.  Of course I was honored and accepted immediately.


Over the past couple of months I used my network of video artists to connect with new video artists, culminating in my contacting over 425 individual artists and inviting them to submit work for review.  The results were amazing!  I received over 1,200 works to review and spent much time during my leave reviewing the work, sneaking viewing times as the boy napped and in late evenings.


Through the process I have discovered so many artists for whom I had previously been unaware, selecting ten artists whose work will be included in the project to be titled I’m Keeping an Eye on You.  I was also fortunate to find so many artists for consideration of future group and solo exhibitions, so I will be contacting many of them and keeping you up to date.


The exhibition I’m Keeping an Eye on You will include the works of international artists Mounira Al Solh, Rachel Garfield, Charlotte Ginsborg, Pia Greschner, Myung-Soo Kim, Yaron Lapid, Jeff Luckey, Johnna MacArthur, Michael Mohan, and Corinna Schnitt.  It will be presented as a single-channel projected loop in Miami before expanding into a full exhibition that is scheduled to open at the ASU Art Museum in early August of 2009.


More complete details will be placed on the ASU Art Museum website in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, here is a link to the Aqua Art Miami website with details on the fair:
