2010 Hallway Happenings at Playa Del Oro, Curator.
This public art project was funded by Decron Properties and the Department of Cultural Affairs. Through exhibitions and public receptions, Otis Fine Arts Students and Westchester residents engaged with each other. Students gained a better understanding of exhibition practices and received greater exposure to the public. Westchester residents were further introduced to the programs and work of the Fine Arts Department of Otis. This mutually beneficial experience combined key events with everyday enrichment. This included four exhibitions of student work in the areas of painting, sculpture, video and photography.2008 Reclaiming: Inter-generation, co-curated with Renée A. Fox and Jenée Misraje.Twenty Otis College of Art and Design alumni exhibited in the former Otis administrative building, producing dialogs spanning many of the 90 years since the college’s inception in 1918. In conjunction with Otis College of Art and Design’s 90th Anniversary Home-Coming, “Reclaiming: Inter-generation” aligned the historical with a contemporary context, creating pairings whose significance was amplified by the space occupied.
