"Inspired" celebrated the end of the Professional Practice Workshop series that I led at California State University Stanislaus. Through a student development grant I was able to take students on tours of galleries, museums, artist studios (Kristen Morgin, Julie Schustack, & Frohawk Two Feathers), residencies, and graduate programs in L.A. and the Bay Area. I was also able to lead a professional writing workshop that assisted students in strengthening their proficiency in applying for grants, internships, artist residencies, and graduate programs. This grant allowed me to host visiting artists who gave lectures on their professional experience and demonstrations on the techniques they use in their artistic practice. This exhibition showcased the work of visiting artists Jonathan Barcan and Elizabeth Kleene and student work created through their collaborative projects and demonstrations. Pictured above are images of the fieldtrips, workshops, in process works, and the resulting "Inspired" exhibition.
