You’ve got to check this out! Go outside, face the Graphic Arts wing of the Main Building, and you will be impressed. You’ll see a great summer art project that was just installed. Andrew Glenn, one of our part-time art instructors, had the students in his Moberly summer ART221/222-Creative Photography class participate in an international participatory grant-funded art project called INSIDE OUT. Last night, his students pasted (with wheat paste which is organic and will degrade over time) their photos to the risers on the exterior front steps of the Graphic Arts wing. Andrew also scanned the students’ black and white portraits and submitted them to the Inside Out project so that they can be added to the project website. The website displays both the original portraits and photos of where the photos have been installed. A statement is submitted with each photo too.
Info about Inside Out from their website:
INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. These digitally uploaded images will be made into posters and sent back to the project’s co-creators for them to exhibit in their own communities. People can participate as an individual or in a group; posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window to a wall of portraits on an abandoned building or a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and viewable virtually. INSIDE OUT is a collaboration between the artist JR, the TED Prize and you.
