This year’s thesis class is very excited to be launching their Kickstarter campaign, which goes live tomorrow. The funds raised from the crowd-funding campaign will be used to create their show JUNCTURE, a two week exhibition of thesis work. The show will expertly showcase more than a year of hard work by the thesis class.
You can help make the show a possibility by going to their launch event.
“We will be hanging out on the top floor of the Asa Flats (1200 NW Marshall) from 5pm to 8pm TONIGHT (2/21/14). Pop in after work or before you light up the town! Have a glass of wine (or soda if that’s your thing), grab a snack and mingle with some incredible artists.”
The event will feature several monitors so that guests can view the thesis Kickstarter video. Participants can also back the event then and there by making a donation. If you can’t make it to the event itself, you can still support this very strong group of young artists by checking out the Kickstarter from home. Visit their site ocacthesis2014.tumblr.com for more details.
As a proud member of OCAC and the library, I can say that thesis work is crucial to the development of these artists. The process of writing a scholarly thesis prepares these individuals for life outside of art school. It challenges them to think critically of art and provides them with valuable skills they can take with them into life. Here at the library we work everyday with thesis students. We see their dedication, hard work, and enthusiasm. We support them everyday in their research endeavors and we ask that you support them as they build this show.
