ACHF Arts Access
The artist will design a curvilinear modular ceramic tile system with overlaying front pieces. The final work will be a 40’ long wall installation. The artist will show this new work in a solo exhibition at the Christensen Center Art Gallery at Augsburg College, Aug 29 - Oct 27, 2016. Attendance will be tallied. 2: Sections will be gifted to public spaces throughout the state, their temporality or permanence will be decided by the individual site. Success will be evaluated by securing five to eight public locations throughout the state in which to donate and install sections of the work.
More Minnesotans were able to engage with my work. A hand counter was used to count visitors at the opening reception. The opening reception had 150 visitors. The number of visitors/Augsburg College students, faculty and staff that passed the gallery daily was in the 100's because the gallery is in a main thoroughfare. Out of those people I can assume 10 - 20 people per day would go into the gallery. 2: Two eight foot long sections of the thirty-six foot wall installation have been placed in long term loan in art centers in Minnesota. I would have liked to place sections of the work in five to eight locations by the end of the granting period. So far I have only placed it in two locations for long term and two locations for short term. I am still hopeful to place the rest of the sections in public spaces throughout the state, but it may take a few more months to get this organized.
