WWU's Cara Jaye to Discuss 'Crossover Two' Art Project April 7

Contact: Ken Clark, director of Western Washington University’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, (360) 650-4403 or ken.clark@wwu.edu

BELLINGHAM – Cara Jaye, Western Washington University associate professor of Art,  will present her experimental art project, "Crossover Two ­­­­­­­­– a collaborative Mixed Media Art Exchange” as part of WWU’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Faculty Research presentation series at noon on Thursday, April 7 at WWU’s Communications Facility room 125.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

Jaye’s project is a collaboration between five artists located across the U.S. and Mexico. A collaborator created a work on paper and then sent it to the next artist's studio to be added to. These mixed-media pieces use layers and multiple viewpoints to create dialogue about crossing borders and nationalities, and to bridge differences while sending work across actual borders.

The purpose of the Faculty Research Presentation Series is to provide opportunities to learn about research, publication of research and the direction research is taking in various disciplines and cross-disciplinary areas of the University. Presentations will be facilitated by faculty members currently or recently involved in substantial research or research and development projects.

For more information contact Ken Clark, director of WWU’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, (360) 650-4403 or ken.clark@wwu.edu, or Connie Hernandez, WWU’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs secretary senior, (360) 650-2884 or connie.hernandez@wwu.edu.
