The opportunity to view world-class art in O.C. has increased exponentially with OCMA’s recent announcement regarding its new home at Segerstrom Center to be designed by Pritzker-winning architect Thom Mayne’s company, Morphosis. The new space will allow the museum to exhibit its rarely seen permanent collection. Meanwhile, UC Irvine is looking for a similar SoCal-based starchitect to begin designing a new home for its recently acquired Irvine and Buck Collections, constituting some 5,000 works of California art, including the largest collection of California impressionists in existence.

Madison Rossetti of El Dorado High plans to attend the University of Oregon as an undeclared photography major. Why this school? “The location, school spirit and the courses/majors they offer. I am planning on double majoring with something else, as of now journalism with a photography major as well. Maybe even photojournalism.” Ashley Chung of Northwood High plans to attend San Jose State University as an art (animation/illustration) major. Why this school? “Animation at SJSU has grown its own reputation for winning multiple awards and developing well-rounded artists. I have heard testimonials about how unusually tight-knit the animation program has become between students and teachers. After going through four years at Northwood, where teachers are passionate about their subject and genuinely care for the well-being of their students, I decided to prioritize having an inspirational faculty over prestige.” Sound The gallery will resume inseconds … [Read more...] about Arts Grads: Visual Arts
For showgoers in New York City, sometimes things can get a little stale. Mid-sized venues can be oversaturated with predictable overlapping schedules and bigger venues can have a stuffy IMAX-level that is anything but intimate. Out in the quaint southern Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook, the eclectic art space Pioneer Works is setting the notion of what a traditional concert can be on its ear.

Curator Monika Andersson calls on accomplished artists in many mediums who push their content formally, technically, and thematically. It’s never just about being pretty. Darker notions balance the bright. To make “Poppy Garden,” Robert Creamer suspended dying poppies above and upon the surface of a flatbed scanner. Their peachy reds are still lush, but most petals fold down like skirts in crinkling decay, exposing waning pistil and stamen. Powdery yellow pollen sprinkles across the black ground. The piece is at once at a height — in color, in crispness — and tumbling down the far side of mortality’s hill.

On November 8, Miracle of Love, an HIV/AIDS education and awareness organization based in Orlando, will stage its second Project Red: An Art Experience event at Parliament House on Orange Blossom Trail. The event will feature artists from around the area in theatre, visual art, fashion, music and other mediums. Proceeds from the event will go to fund Miracle of Love’s community endeavors, including programs for pregnant women, housing for HIV positive individuals, and care management assistance for underinsured or non-insured individuals with HIV/AIDS. The first Project Red: An Art Experience took place in 2015, when an artist approached Miracle of Love with the idea to stage an art show that communicated to an audience what the color red meant to them. Red ribbons have been the internationally recognized symbol of HIV/AIDS awareness since the founding of World AIDS Day in 1988 and the Red Ribbon International Organization in 1993. As the project grew in scope during that first … [Read more...] about A night of fashion, visual art and music combine in a fundraiser to support HIV/AIDS organization Miracle of Love, Inc.
