OHSU Historical Collections & Archives agrees to "the hunt"...

It is with great pleasure I announce that 
Archivist Sara Piasecki & Karen Peterson 
of the OHSU Historical Collections & Archives 
have agreed whole heartily to helping and allowing 
my fellow artist and myself to the material to 
inspire "the scavenger hunt."
 This is an amazing opportunity for all. 

This treasure filled collection will be gently “hunted” and recontextualized for the modern viewer. I will send a group of artist including myself on a structured “scavenger hunt” in the OHSU collection. The item “found” will then be interpreted, inspire, be recreated and any other number of possibilities into the creation of new pieces (without any harm done to the item “found”) in hope of creating a new “solution.” It will be a great opportunity for artist and viewers to reflect on the importance of these collections.
Now to pull the artists together... 
I'll keep you updated on events as they transpire.

I want to thank OHSU & Sara & Karen for 
their part in making this idea a reality.  
Please support these archives in anyway you can. 

Their current exhibit is until September:

Beautiful Gross Anatomy

Her glasses are just awesome... not to mention her work.
