Another successful semester of City Art Lab comes to a close with a jam-packed art exhibition of youth artwork. Hosted at Gallery M, the opening attracted close to 150 youth artists, friends, family, and curious passersby. For more information about the projects the graduate students facilitated, check out their regular blog pots on the City Art Lab website.
The final exhibition of teen artwork from this spring’s City Art Lab drew crowds of over 150 family, friends, educators, and fans to Azucarar Gallery in Harlem to celebrate the work of a talented group of young artists. The exhibition was curated and installed by the graduate students in City College’s Art Education program. Not a bad way to finish up the semester.
Almost ten years ago I stumbled over my broken Zulu through a series of interviews with an incredible group of artists from the Siyazama Project–a craft/economic development project focusing on HIV/AIDS education with women in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. After many years of dreaming about it, the book that Kate Wells, Marsha MacDowell, Kurt Dewhurst, and I worked so hard on is finally here.
