Bryn Mawr College Special Collections is hosting four visual artists at the College for 24-hour residencies spanning Commencement and move-out day.
The participating artists are: printmaker and textile artist/sculptor Kay S. Healy (Philadelphia); new/digital media/installation artist James Johnson (Philadelphia); hand-drawn animation artist Jennifer Levonian (Philadelphia); large-format film and digital photographer Gilbert Plantinga (New York).
The artists and a slew of student ambassadors are beginning to make their way across campus today (keep an eye out for t-shirts bearing the project logo); we’ll share some updates, some links, and some images over the course of the weekend.
Selected artworks developed in response to this residency period will be exhibited in the fall of 2012 in the Class of 1912 Rare Book Room in Canaday Library and perhaps – depending upon format, scope, etc. of the works – elsewhere on campus.
