Work by the instructors was included and they are veterans themselves and used the medium to communicate complex issues.
May 27–September 17, 2017
Ted Meyer has connected with survivors of wars, accidents, and mental and physical health issues by layering paint on top of the skin, rubbing it to record the actual contours of the scars left by these incidents. Not only has Meyer embellished the resulting marks on the paper, but photo of the survivors with their stories in their own words makes a strong visual statement.
Coming up is one more exhibition in this series: : July 29–October 8, 2017. A small group of veterans wrote letters to themselves, reflecting on hardship and healing during workshops facilitated by artist at the museum. These letters have been incorporated into the “war wounds” that participants created using various materials.
But there is another exhibition by Michelle Montjoy that also demonstrates community involvement in making art. March 25–July 9, 2017 is a small show which documents the participation of people who, using large table top looms or finger crocheting, contributed to a visual conversation by knitting or crocheting, braiding or knotting a form using old t-shirts.
More of Michelle Montjoy's work can be seen at the entrance and when ascending and descending the main staircase. Ms. Montjoy is currently in the New Contemporaries exhibition. You have until Aug 4 to visit and vote for your own choice of New Contemporaries emerging artists nominated for the San Diego Art Prize. There is a second reception for this show on July 8 from 6 to 9 pm at basileIE + CMCuratorial in Barrio Logan. San Diego Visual Arts Network who produced the San Diego Art Prize is putting up a cash prize for the public choice award but you have to be present at the venue to vote with your smart device. at www.sdvan.net/app. Here are links to
