About this event

What do privacy envelopes, pulverized rockets, drywall, crime scene tape, and woven cut paper have in common?

They are all materials carefully selected by artists to express an idea. BLUR explores what happens when creatives push the boundaries of traditional media through experimentation. It offers students, community artists, and community creatives the opportunity to view, respond, enjoy, and reflect upon the work of artists who are outside the student arena and are building practices as professional artists. The works in the exhibitions have a common interwoven thread: they are made by artists who use innovative, experimental, trial and error, and risk-taking methodologies in their professional practices.
