Exploring Engagement: Blind Spot

Exploring Engagement Artist-in-Residence Number 3 - TRANSIT

“Blind Spot” by Ben Horton
Artist Podcast & Muraling Practices Discussion with Lara Bullock (UCSD Art History)
Cost: Free, bacon & donuts provided

Throughout late fall 2014 and into early winter of 2015 The Oceanside Museum of Art’s Exploring Engagement Program, has supported two unique voices in Louis Schmidt (Los Angeles) and Ben Horton (El Cajon). Taking form by way of establishing creative content via public inquiry, their projects have set out to examine Oceanside’s relationship with Regional Transportation as primary means for investigation.

Growing up in rural America, Schmidt admits his fascination with trains’ stems from their perceived omnipresence; the sound of their passing “heard across every inch of town, chugging their way into, out of and around the heart of the country, to destinations unknown” . . . Along similar lines, his wanderings have become the subject matter of a photo-book specific to San Diego while examining Oceanside as a hub. Whereby, Schmidt spent seven days in Oceanside observing every working rail-based commute imaginable himself, Horton reveals that his interest has to do with getting to know bus riders specifically; their routes as well as their stories . . . Here, Horton has blurred himself amongst fellow commuters - yet all the while thinking, mining, and ultimately acting out upon a wider interest in personal narratives as they relate to ideas revering what public muraling practices might put forward.

Both artists have been encouraged to pursue works that conceptually-bridge both common and unexpected experiences of daily ridership.

The workshop is open to all levels of experience, with instruction available. Because we are drawing in the gallery please bring only graphite, charcoal or pastel to class. OMA can provide a limited number of drawing benches so bring your own drawing board and paper or sketchpad with you as well. Class size is small so sign up now!
Class Structure:
Each session will last 2 hours.

The primary focus of the short pose is to force the drawer to step away from making a “produced,” and concentrate on the process.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
Sat, 14 Feb 2015 19:30:00 +0000

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

The Star Theatre Company presents “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” from February 13-22.

Winner of the TONY and the Drama Desk Award for Best Book Get out your dictionaries! An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A riotous ride complete with audience participation, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is delightful den of comedic genius.

For a mature audience.
