Ventura College Beginning Sculpture - Cardboard Chairs

This Beginning Sculpture class project was to construct chairs with some sort of historical reference/influence out of cardboard.  The chair would need to support the artist's weight when completed.   Great results on a challenging assignment.

Ventura College One Book One Campus Art Exhibit

Following are several photos from the One Book One Campus opening night reception held on the Ventura College campus October 7, 2010.  The installation, "Baked Potatoes," was a collaborative project produced by the VC ceramic students.  The book and show addresses how a mono-culture affects our daily life. The students symbolized this by creating an installation of the ubiquitous potato - how the same strain of potato can be found in foods across the world.
