'Dear Mr. President' Project Gives CSUN Community a Voice

Thursday, 23 October 2008

Do you have something you want to say to the next president of the United States of America? Do you have a personal story or concern you want to share about this historic election? Faculty, staff, students and community members have until Thursday, Nov. 6, to visit Cal State Northridge's own version of the MTV-styled "confessional" booth.

The confessional booth is part of cinema and television arts lecturer Geri Ulrey's project: Dear Mr. President. The project involves the use of a mobile video booth located in a miniature house that travels around campus. Faculty, staff, students and visitors to campus are invited to record a video message addressed to the next president of the United States of America. Participants are encouraged to share personal stories, feelings and thoughts about their lives.The video messages will be organized, streamed from the project's Web site and mailed to theWhite House.

"My desire is to engage with young people regarding the political process," said Ulrey, who collaborated with the Art Department and several student organizations in designing the project and the house. "I believe that it is really important for people to hear themselves speak."

Geri Ulrey, Cinema and TelevisionArtsDepartment lecturer, instructs student Kemi George on how to balance the lighting for the camera used to record Dear Mr. President project letters. The project will be recording messages on campus at various locations untilNov. 6.

Geri Ulrey, Cinema and TelevisionArtsDepartment lecturer, instructs student Kemi George on how to balance the lighting for the camera used to record Dear Mr. President project letters. The project will be recording messages on campus at various locations untilNov. 6.

The video house is open now through Nov. 6 at various locations on campus. Ulrey, the project producer and director, said the project is nonpartisan. She plans to send the footage to the campaigns of both Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama, no matter who wins on Nov. 4.

The project was funded through a grant from CSUN's Judge Julian Beck Learning-Centered Instructional Projects. Beck grants are awarded to faculty to provide students with opportunities to actively engage in and ultimately become responsible for their own learning. Projects must be completed in one year and all faculty and staff are eligible to submit projects, either individually or as a group.

Ulrey said students are involved at all levels in the project, from inviting visitors to taping messages and editing and uploading the messages.

"This is an opportunity to bring art to large numbers of people who wouldn't ordinarily have the opportunity, and to involve students on all levels," said Kim Abeles, professor of art. She said art students helped design the Victorian style miniature house as an on-campus public art piece. The idea for the house design came out of the notion that individuals are most comfortable talking about issues in cozy chairs in their own home, she added.

"It's portable, yet it's also a cozy place,"Abeles added.

So far, nearly a hundred students, faculty and staff have taped messages with themes ranging from concerns about the economy to health care.

During his tapedmessage, student Shahar Aframian said he was concerned about taxes, gas prices and the economy.

"I think those issues are more important than Iraq and the war," he added.

Animals, real and imaginary. We fear them, pamper them, tame them, trap them, eat them, lobby on their behalf, experiment on them, strut them as status symbols, and exterminate them. How do contemporary artists represent them?

From the caves of Lascaux, to the halls of the Louvre, there is no escaping them. With their long pedigree in the history of art, they prowl the great museums of the world. And today, animals leap from the work of contemporary artists, symbolically expressing their ideas and emotions. OCCCA's terrific exhibition space will showcase a menagerie of superb examples of this trend, from the traditional to the avant-garde, from the realistic to the fantastic, in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video and new media

A catalog of accepted works will
accompany this exhibition.

Artist Bio
Born in Florida, artist Paul Andrew Wandless has his studio in the Philadelphia, PA area.

A Presidential Appointee to the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) since 2003,
Wandless is one of a select few internationally prominent African American artists working in the ceramics medium. A published author, and curator of exhibitions, Wandless actively promotes artists whose work, like his, challenges traditional notions of image and the "art object." In his words..."ultimately, my work is meant to engage and inform the viewer by telling my side of the story of how I see the world through my personal experiences, insights and philosophy."

Rancho Cucamonga, CA - Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum are pleased to present Inlandia. Like the 2007-2008 College Book of the same name, Inlandia assembles a group of artists who explore disparate ideas that make the Inland Empire a place with a cultural landscape all its own. The artists in Inlandia are based in TX, MN, OR, NY and CA, but regardless of their proximity to the Inland area, their works are informed directly by this regions political and social landscape or investigate ideas relevant to the IE community. Inlandia surveys the Inland Empire’s status as the fastest growing region in Southern California, the resulting suburban sprawl and ecological impact on the area, the beauty and inspiration of the landscape of the sprawling IE territory, and the characters that make this region unique and diverse. Artists utilize various media to comment on, record and realize the Inland Empire.

Inlandia features work by Edith Abeyta (CA), Adam Belt (CA), Sasha Bezzubov (NY), Margarita Cabrera (TX), Misty Cervantes(CA), Samantha Fields (CA), The Institute for Figuring (CA), Roman Jaster (CA), Sant Khalsa (CA), Kimberly Kolba (OR), Amy Maloof (CA), Michelle Mayer (CA), Thomas McGovern (CA), Jessica Newman-Skrentny (CA), David Rathman (MN), Alex Slade(CA), Jessica Swanson (CA), and Roger Tilton (CA).
