Another fantastic Public Art Program that I am happy to have helped coordinate, as well as be a participant in, has gone out into the world! AVA Gallery and Art Center’s fall 2011 project: Linocut and Corkboards is installed all over the Upper Valley. Keep a look out for the displays in Hanover, Lebanon, and White River Junction — there’s free art for the taking!
Participants in Josh Yunger’s class produced a large print run from their newly created plates and we’ve hung them on community corkboards in unexpected locations, converting the text-heavy advertisement sites into exhibition spaces. Better yet, viewers are invited to bring their favorite prints home to extend the giving.
The above images show a batch of nine prints installed at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, November 2011.
