Other participants

Alumna Brianna Baurichter (’16, MFA) was chosen as one of four recipients of the 2016 ArtPrize Fellowship for Emerging Curators. Baurichter assisted Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM) curator Ron Platt in the curation of GRAM’s ArtPrize Eight exhibition and also curated her own exhibition, (RE)COMPOSE, located at 130 Ottawa.

Alumna Erica Lang (’14, BFA Printmaking) curated Shut Down Line 5, an exhibition raising awareness of the dangers of the Enbridge oil pipeline running through the Straits of Mackinac. The exhibition is located inside Woosah Outfitters, the printshop and retail store owned and operate by Lang on Division Avenue in Grand Rapids, and will feature woodcut prints by Lang as well as collaborative works with other local artists.

As collaborators in the ArtPrize STEAM Village Learning Lab (located at the ArtPrize HUB) students and faculty from the Digital Media program will lead hands-on demonstrations of educational apps they developed in collaboration with K-12 students from West Michigan through the program’s Engaging Production Inspiring Classrooms (EPIC) initiative, as well as external creative media.

Students in the Pamella Roland DeVos School of Fashion are volunteer participants in “Yardage,” the piece by KCAD alumnus Mark Rumsey (’08, MFA) included in KCAD’s RE exhibition. The students will be helping Rumsey process discarded clothing, which they will upcycle into new garment designs using a sustainable design strategy called zero-waste design that uses 100% of the raw fabric material.
