The Visual and Public Art department at CSUMB is pleased to announce the new Artist-in-Residence Program in collaboration with the Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD) . The art exhibition will be on view through May 20, 2016.
This artist-in-residency (AIR) was implemented as a collaborative partnership between the Visual and Public Art (VPA) Program at CSUMB and the Monterey Regional Waste Management District (MRWMD). There are several examples of AIR programs in the solid waste industry, and MRWMD has a history of providing opportunities for artists to create art from salvaged materials. This partnership will draw upon the expertise of CSUMB VPA faculty who along with MRWMD members select and mentor the student participants. The District (MRWMD) provides access to material salvaging, a stipend, and a place to work and create. Our current spring 2016 Artist-in-Residents are Alberto Araujo, Jessica Lara, and Ben Ward.
