Ballroom Marfa’s Texas Biennial artist Alyce Santoro visited Marfa Jr/Sr High School as part of our ongoing program, Making Art Work. By coordinating in-class visits, the program gives students direct exposure to working art professionals, like Santoro.
In addition to sharing her own background — and using her work, Evolution of an Artist, as a jumping-off point — Alyce discussed different systems people from all kinds of disciplines and cultures have developed to tap into personal forms of creativity and the intersection of art and science.
She also brought along lots of “philosoprops“ to demonstrate and discuss headgear (satellite dish hat, feather hat, and pin hat), which the students were able to touch and try on.
The Synergetic Omni-Solution and its educational programs have been made possible through the generous support of Jeff & Toni Beauchamp. Special thanks to Marfa Independent School District and Jeff Fort & Marion Barthelme.
