Name: Denison: 'The Billboard Project'
Date: April 7, 2017
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Denison Art Space in Newark holds an opening reception for “The Billboard Project,” featuring artwork by students from McGuffey Elementary and the YES Clubhouse. The exhibit is the culmination of a public-art outreach project led by Sheilah Wilson, assistant professor of studio art. In its second year, “The Billboard Project” was conceived by Wilson as a way to engage the public with contemporary art. Wilson obtained grant funding to install public billboards in Newark. She then worked with Denison students to develop workshops for Newark-area schoolchildren that used the billboard images as a catalyst for conversation and visual response. Students also were given disposable cameras and asked to take photos using the theme: “Who do you love? What do you love?” Their images have been published in a newspaper that will be on display during the opening reception. This project was funded by the Ohio Arts Council, Licking County Foundation and Denison University.
