Winter break at the de Young

 Over winter break professors Ken Alexander and Curtis Corlew managed to visit the de Young museum just like they are always asking their students to do. Except they didn't assign papers to themselves. They spent a lot of time viewing Masters of Venice: Renaissance Painters of Passion and Power from the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna and a moment in the Ralph Eugene Meatyard: Dolls and Masks show.

The guards kept saying "No photography allowed!" so they didn't make the photos shown here. They just imagined making them. Or something.

They give it all an enthusiastic thumbs up.

Inside Out: Self portraits based on contemporary graffiti and stencil art

LMC art instructor Judi Pettite took advantage of blank plywood construction walls at the college to exhibit her painting students work. Each piece is a stencil based self portrait on 24 x 24 inch plywood, screwed on to the temporary walls. The work, though inspired by Banksy Shepard and Swoon, reflects each students personal story.
