SHIFT: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally

 

SHIFT: Thinking Globally, Acting Locally is a snapshot of artists living and working in Ohio who embody an art practice that prioritizes universal transformation by starting from within their immediate purview. The exhibition is curated by Maria Seda-Reeder.

Concepts and approaches to art making that are both intimately distinctive as well as internationally conscious can support and become a catalyst for radical change at all levels of society. In this moment of environmental crisis, ongoing social unrest and political upheaval in the United States as well as abroad, the arenas in which artists might be able to affect change are severely contracted yet have profound implications. The eleven artists in SHIFT create art with the understanding that a commitment to the collective begins with a devotion to the intimately personal.

Featured artists include Amber J. Anderson, Autumn Bland, Alison Crocetta, Lauren Davies, Tracy Featherstone, Terence Hammonds, Kevin Harris, M. Carmen Lane, Lorena Molina, Danielle Julian Norton, and Xia Zhang

Media support is provided by CD92.9CitySceneOhio Channel, Ohio Magazine, and WCBE 90.5 FM.

The 2020-22 Ohio House of Representatives High School Student Art Virtual Exhibition 

The Ohio House of Representatives High School Student Art Exhibit, also known as “The 99 Show” is a collaboration with the Ohio House of Representatives, the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Art Education Association to mount a student exhibition representing all 99 House Districts in the State of Ohio. The exhibition recognizes the talents, creativity and innovation of students who receive high quality arts education instruction as part of their academic experience in school. It represents art by some of Ohio’s finest high school artists.

The biennial show is displayed in the Statehouse walkway that connects the Riffe Center to the Statehouse in Columbus. This is the same passage legislators take to and from their offices every day. It is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the great work of our art students to their representatives in state government.
