The Hunt is on...

Tonight was the party for the beginning of "The Hunt"
I am very pleased @ the excitement & interest.
I am bowled over how the objects from the archive 
seem to have found the right artists to interpret them.

A lovely night had by all!

Thank you Artists, Archivist, Maria, Marilyn & Arthur... 
Amazing night for the kick off for the Hunt Show! 
The foxes are running!

And the Head Count for "The Hunt" is...

Head Count....

For Immediate Release:

Beth I. Robinson will be curating a show entitled
"The Hunt" for the Hoffman Gallery on 
Oregon College of Art and Craft Campus
in July of 2011.

Robinson will send a group of artists, including herself,
on a gentle "hunt" through the 
OHSU Historical Collection & Archives.
The item "found" will then be interpreted or utilized as 
inspiration by each of the involved artists into the creation of 
new piece (without any harm done to the item "found.")

It will be a great opportunity for artists and viewers
to reflect on the importance of these collections.

It is with great pleasure to announce
the artists to participate in "The Hunt":

Amanda Pentzak
Aria Benner
Alex Weber
Benjamin Rood
Beth I. Robinson

Jessie Benenson
