We Love Art @ JC
The first phase for the "We Love Art" Project involved taking photographs of people who are attending the Blue Plum Festival while holding a blue heart with the words "we" and "Art" etched into it. Participants were asked to hold the "We Love Art" symbol as part of the photograph. After all the images are collected, the next phases involve the continuation of image gathering and compilation of the digital photographs into a video format to be projected on a wall in Downtown Johnson City during First Fridays. Aside from the "We Love Art" photos, still shots of art venues like Tipton Gallery, Nelson Fine Art, Johnson City Area Arts Council, Sparks Plaza, Greenstone Gallery and various images of art events and performances will be included on the loop of images being projected.
The We Love Art Project is an art awareness campaign in line with the new Arts Initiative at ETSU.
We thank all the art lovers who are part of the "We Love Art" project! We also appreciate the efforts of our Friends of the Slocumb Galleries and Slocumb Galleries Student Society (SGSS) members and volunteers: Spenser Brenner, Michael Hale, Megan King, Desiree Markland, Shai Perry, Katie Sheffield and Mr. & Ms. Jose and Shannon Castillo.
