"Art@Work is a celebration - a celebration of a successful partnership and collaboration between Peckham, Inc.
and MSU's Residential College in the Arts and Humanities (RCAH)
and College of Engineering
," says Shavonne Singleton, Peckham Public Relations Specialist. The partnership brings together higher education, the arts, accessibility and technology to highlight the abilities and diversity of each individual artist.
With Peckham’s emphasis on diversity and therapeutic and creative self-expression through art, and RCAH’s focus on civic engagement, community, and experiential learning in the arts and humanities, the two realized this collaboration would be an excellent opportunity to create a visual representation reflecting innovation, and inclusiveness. Students from the College of Engineering worked specifically to develop a proposed solution to install the art display, and most recently, collaborated with RCAH students to develop viewing technology for the installation.
"For the artists," Singleton explains, "we hope the Art@Work is a source of pride – to be able to express themselves and their stories artistically, and also share that story with the community at large."
The unveiling will take place on Saturday, February 23, from 10AM to 1PM at Peckham and is a free event open to the public.
