“Out There” 3 minute animation competition winners

March 7, 2017

“Out There” was a three minute animation competition for women artists in Michigan, sponsored by the Women’s Caucus for Art, Michigan, and the Ann Arbor Film Festival. Animators were asked to show what’s off the grid, in outer space or inner depths, and what is normally invisible, unspoken or off limits. This compilation of the winners will be on view at the WCAMI blog and Facebook page through 2017. They will be included in the  55th Ann Arbor Film Festival’s Off The Screen! programming at North Quad Space 2435 throughout the duration of the festival (March 21-26) during these hours:

Tues. 2-6pm, Wed., Thurs., Fri. 10am-6pm, Sat. & Sun. 10am-4pm

Reception

There will be a reception for all exhibitions at North Quad on Tuesday, March 21st, from 3-5pm. Refreshments will be provided.

Kathleen Letts writes – I hope you will join me for the opening reception of Trans Human from 6-9 p.m. on Thursday, April 20th at River House Arts. The gallery is located on the main floor of the historic Secor Building at 425 Jefferson in downtown Toledo. Trans Human features paintings, drawings, large wall appliqués, an on-site mural and limited edition serigraphs, employing images from our cultural history to address the perils and possibilities of a future where humans are in control of their own evolution.

Trans Human will be open from April 20-May 14, and gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday, 4-10 p.m. and by appointment.

The opening of Trans Human also coincides with Toledo Art Commission’s April Art Loop/Spring Sounds from 5:30-9:30, and the Toledo Museum of Art is open until 9 p.m. (the Kehinde Wiley show is not to be missed), so there’s plenty of art to see all over town.

Michigan and New Mexico have thriving arts economies and Rep. Debbie Dingell(MI) and Senator Tom Udall(NM) want to keep it that way. Their new funding proposal works to reverse deep cuts to the arts proposed by the Trump administration. They deserve our support. http://bit.ly/2n7Lqb5
