    Shelley Sacks on Art, Social Sculpture and Creating a Sustainable World

    in Education

    We'll explore with Shelley Sacks how socially engaged artistic processes can help individuals and communities find new ways new ways of engaging with the world to create a more sustainable future. Plus, we'll find out more about two of her key projects -- University of the Trees, and Exchange Values.


    Shelley will lead a three-day "University of the Trees: U.S. Summer Institute 2014" from August 1 to 3, 2014, at the Jane Goodall Center at Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, Connecticut, USA. This is the first intensive training on University of the Trees to be held in the U.S., building on similar trainings Shelley has done in England, Germany and South Africa. Space is limited to a small cohort of co-learners.


    Shelley Sacks works internationally in connective practices and social sculpture, exploring the relationship between imagination and transformation, the individual and community, and rethinking responsibility as an ability-to-respond. She leads a master’s and doctoral program in social sculpture at Oxford Brookes University, where she is Professor of Social Sculpture and Interdisciplinary Arts, and Director of the Social Sculpture Research Unit. She is the co-author of the recently released Atlas of the Poetic Continent: Pathways to Ecological Citizenship.

    The making of a literary mean presented by the Mid-Mahattan Library NYC.


    www.wikipedia says: Adjacent neighborhoods are the Flatiron District to the north, Chelsea to the west, Greenwich Village to the southwest, East Village to the southeast, and Gramercy Park to the east. Many buildings of The New School are near the square,[6] as are several dormitories of New York University. The eastern side of the square is dominated by the four Zeckendorf Towers, on the former site of the bargain-priced department store, S. Klein, and the south side by the full-square block mixed-use One Union Square South  It features a kinetic wall sculpture and digital clock expelling bursts of steam, titled Metronome.

    Manifest Justice: The Impact of Socially Conscience Art.

    in Culture

    There is nothing like being emotionally moved by a piece of art. Whether it be a painting, sculpture, or some other form of creativity; the overall impression can be lasting and coerce us to rethink how we view ourselves and the world around us. 


    Manifest Justice is a large-scale pop-up art exhibition, cultural convening, and community organizing event taking place in the Baldwin Hills area of South Los Angeles. Unlike other civil rights exhibits that highlight events from the 60's, Manifest Justice is hauntingly current. Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, and Oscar Grant are but a few of the many victims who have been immortalized through the works of over 150 artists. 


    Tonight I will be joined by Nijeul Xavier Porter, a young man who is instrumental to the success of the event; and Gabriel Garcia Roman, an artist who has works on display at the event. Both will share why the event is important -especially in today's social climate-and what it means to be a part of the experience.

    A Theory of Parenting - Rockefeller Center

    in Current Events

    Hello,


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com


    My name is Tammi Joyner 


    I am your Host for the Show


    Today we are live from Rockefeller Center in NYc


    Throughout the year, the Rockefeller Center Channel Gardens blooms in uniquely themed plant installations that transform with the seasons. 


    Visit the Channel Gardens to see the April Showers installation on display from April 20 through May 31.


     


    Designed specifically for Rockefeller Plaza, Masks (Pentagon) consists of five masks ranging in height from 14.5 to 16.5 feet, each of which reflects a different approach to the stylized representation of the human face, from the clearly recognizable to the highly abstracted. 


    The five masks, which were cast from clay in industrial-strength synthetic plaster, stand on a stepped base made from massive beams of unfinished redwood. The back of each element of the sculpture reveals the artists method of construction – a grid-like armature of rebar inlaid with hemp and plaster.


    Rockefeller Center is home to a remarkable collection of art deco motifs and sculptures signifying man’s development in spirit, science, industry and more.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with sculptor Kevin Caron of Arizona

    in Art

    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday April 9th, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST is sculptor Kevin Caron.


     


    We invite you to listen and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  


     


    Kevin Caron is a sculptor from Phoenix, Arizona. He has created more than 40 private and public commissioned works which are on display across the United States. His public art  sculpture Hands On won 17th Annual Best of the West Arts & Culture Award for 2009. He works primarily in fabricated steel.


     


    Caron was born on February 2, 1960. He moved to Arizona with his family in 1973. He served six years in the US Navy, where he worked in machine shops, and aircraft maintenance yards. He was honorably discharged in 1983.


     


    He managed a car repair shop, and in between jobs, built his own vehicle. His career as a sculptor was inspired by his work on a privacy screen. When he had completed the screen, he visualized a fountain made from the same material. Caron became a full-time artist in 2006.


     


    As he launched his art career, he also began a YouTube channel, adding a video each week. By August 2013, the channel had more than 300 videos, more than 15,000 subscribers and 5 million views. He lists M.C. Escher and Antoine Pevsner among his design inspirations.
