2017 Capstone Exhibition dedicated to Jasmine

jamine2017 Capstone Exhibition Opens Friday, May 5th, 2017

The 2017 Capstone exhibit is dedicated to Jasmine R. R. Spiegel, a passionate artist, an amazing teacher, a wonderful colleague, and a good friend. May she live on in our hearts. May we remember everything she taught us, and may we move through life with light, wonder, and awe. We love you, Jasmine. Rest in Peace.

As you look at the Capstone exhibit this year (opening Friday, May 5th), we invite you to think about what these young artists and writers are communicating through their work. How are our young da Vinci artists re-thinking, re-imagining, and re-defining skill? The following is a quote by Jerry Saltz, a well known American art critic for the New York Times.

“I don’t look for skill in art…Skill has nothing to do with technical proficiency… I’m interested in people who rethink skill, who redefine or reimagine it: an engineer, say, who builds rockets from rocks. I’m looking for what the artist is trying to say and what he or she is actually saying, what the work reveals about society and the timeless conditions of being alive.” -Jerry Saltz, Artnet Magazine

Enjoy the show!

My Land/Your Land

The November art exhibition is now open in the Connie Cheifetz Gallery. The title of the new exhibit is “My Land/Your Land.” Through visual art, students were asked to express and voice their opinions about politics, social justice, protest, current events, and/or the current Presidential election. There are a variety of different opinions expressed in the artwork. We ask that you respect points of view that may differ from your own. The show includes plaster masks, screenprinted T-shirts, and drawings/paintings. Please go check it out!

City Kids

What makes a New York City kid? To answer that question, the New York Times talked to a dozen young New Yorkers, who told them their stories and shared videos shot on their phones. The Times asked a dozen young New Yorkers to share moments of their lives in a typical week. Here’s what they sent.

Now I am wondering what makes a Portland kid? Submit a short video shot on your phone and let’s find out!
