Final two days to visit CSUMB exhibitions
There’s just time to catch Guardians and Walking Through, two exhibitions of works by students at CSUMB. These exhibits provide a propitious glimpse of what is being created by the community’s emerging artists. For Guardians, students of the painting and mural class created self-portraits to describe what they value enough to protect. In Walking Through, works by sculpture students are made of manipulated wire. The exhibitions were curated by students of CSUMB’s museum studies program and are on display in the Balfour/Brutzman Gallery in Bldg. 71 on the CSUMB campus. The remaining hours of the exhibition are Thursday 9am-4pm and Friday noon-3pm. A campus map is available at csumb.edu/map or call 582-3005.
Youth Arts Collective Moves, Divests
One of the most powerful forces for developing the art future of Monterey County is the Youth Arts Collective, a non-profit after-school program that provides individualized mentorships to young people ages 14-22, who are serious about their art. Open five days a week, the program gives not just instruction, but also induction into a creative and positive way of life. YAC is moving to a larger space that will open in December. Meanwhile, the collective has appliances, cameras and darkroom equipment (it’s going digital), computers and other assets that it would like to give away to artists and nonprofits by Nov. 17. Call 375-9922 for more information.
