2017 Artist in Residence: Kim Schoenstadt
Exhibit opens Jan. 30; closing reception to be held Feb. 9 from 4-6 p.m.
Kim Schoenstadt’s artist residency project in Crossroads School’s Sam Francis Gallery continues her ongoing exploration of drawing by extending the natural “vanishing points” from the individual buildings contained within a “mash-up” drawing. Shoenstadt will work with students to both paint the work directly onto the walls and extend the vanishing points using cord.
Collaborating cross-disciplinarily, math and visual art students will calculate and map the angles of the lines that extend from the drawing and visually appear to cut through walls. Younger participants will physically see the drawing differently and pull the lines per their perspective. Older participants will also bring their knowledge and concerns to the project and pull the lines per their knowledge base.
