A presentation and celebration of these new projects took place on Wednesday June 12th, from 7-9pm at the Lawrence Arts Center in the large gallery. The newly selected artists presented a summary of their projects, also joined by originally selected East Ninth artist Stephen Johnson. A video of the presentations can be viewed here.
We'd also like to thank the juror panel who served to select our six new artists. The project outline asked for jurors to have knowledge of community based artwork, and to represent the kind of projects and artists we would want to see. That meant diversity, not just demographically, but across medium and experience. The Pathways Phase jurors were:
Joey Orr, Spencer Museum Armando Minjarez- Wichita-based muralist and interdisciplinary artist Jenny Mendez- director of Cultural Arts, Mattie Rhodes Center, KCMO Marlo Angell- Filmmaker, Lawrence Arts Center Amber Hansen- Instructor, Artist, University of South Dakota
We thank them for their time and expertise.
