University of Maryland Art Gallery Solo show installation images

Added on by Kim Schoenstadt.

From March 23 through June 30, 2016 the University of Maryland Art Gallery, in collaboration with the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, present Kim Schoenstadt: Discussion Wall 3 & 4, an interactive, student-centric installation that allows students to work directly with one of the nation’s leading contemporary artists, Kim Schoenstadt.

Boxes for collecting “ART” and “NOT ART” items have been strategically placed within studio and common areas of The Clarice and UMD’s Department of Art. Students are encourages to place items that they think might correspond with one or the other category. It could be a drawing, a sketch, a Post-it note, an old term paper, a musical score, a trinket or good luck charm, blueprints for a performance or installation, an outline for choreography, etc.

At the conclusion of Spring Break, all deposited items will be physically stamped as ARTor NOT ART,depending on which box it is in. Then, Schoenstadt will collage the works on an adjacent wall within the space during her visit to campus the week of March 21st. As a coda to the project, Schoenstadt will create a site-specific wall drawing directly on top of all the collaged materials.

Fourteen artists selected to create art for Crenshaw/LAX Line project

By Heidi Zeller on April 15, 2015( 1 Comment )

A panel of nationally recognized curators and local arts professionals, including community members from the Crenshaw/LAX corridor, has selected fourteen artists to create site-specific, integrated artworks for the Crenshaw/LAX project. The diverse range of accomplished artists includes:

Ingrid Calame (Crenshaw/Vernon Station)
Eileen Cowin (Crenshaw/MLK Station)
Kenturah Davis (Florence/La Brea Station)
Deanna Erdmann (Crenshaw/Vernon Station)
Sherin Guirguis (Aviation/Century Station)
Carlson Hatton (Crenshaw/Slauson Station)
Mara Lonner (Crenshaw/MLK Station)
Rebeca Méndez (Crenshaw/Expo Station)
Geoff McFetridge (Florence/Hindry Station)
Erwin Redl (Crenshaw/Expo Station)
Kim Schoenstadt (Florence/West Station)
Jaime Scholnick (Crenshaw/Expo Station)
Shinique Smith (Crenshaw/MLK Station)
Mickalene Thomas (Crenshaw/Vernon Station)

The selection followed an extensive outreach process including a series of artist workshops, community presentations, notices in local papers and on social media. A call to artists was sent to over 5,000 artists and widely distributed to local arts organizations and resulted in over 1,200 responses.

The artist selection panel carefully considered how the artworks would relate to their specific sites and communities as well as how they would relate to each other and contribute to the customer’s transit experience along the entire alignment. To ensure their permanence as cultural landmarks, the artworks will be executed in a range of highly durable materials including glass, tile, porcelain enamel steel, stainless steel and mosaic.

Metro Art has a strong track record of working with artists and communities, and in keeping with this tradition, artists will engage surrounding communities in a range of approaches. Stay tuned for posts on meet-the-artist events and project updates, as well as stories related to upcoming artworks specifically designed to mitigate impacts during project construction phases.
