North Trail's Ringling College Braces for Second ArtWalk of the Season

Posted by ntadmin in Ringling College , North Trail , Art Walk

The Ringling College of Art and Design campus overflows this Friday, October 12, with an ArtWalk from 4pm to 7pm featuring the opening of seven new exhibitions. From faculty art to student creations, featured photographers, college-wide collaborations and even a former New York Times journalist looking to activate local democracy through art, folks may just have to run if they’re going to see it all.

Technically, the day begins at 11am, when journalist-turned-artist-for-democracy Sheryl Oring will be on campus with her “I Wish to Say” performance, seeing the artist adopt the role of a secretary out of the 1960s, armed with a typewriter so students and other passersby can dictate their own postcard to the president. It’s something she’s done since 2004, hoping to activate democratic impulses in her audiences, especially students. “That’s been important to me because young people sometimes feel like they’re not listened to,” says Oring. “Maybe they’ll actually write a letter to one of their elected officials or take action in some small way in their community.”

In the Basch Visual Arts Center, audiences will see selections from Oring’s past projects, as well as a new series incorporating statements ripped from news articles about the #MeToo movement and another new series exhibiting past postcards sent to President Trump through Oring in 2017.
