Art in Odd Places at Endicott

Beverly, MA – Endicott College is pleased to present the world famous New York City public arts festival, Art in Odd Places (AiOP) funded by a Community of Learners grant from the College. From Monday, April 9 to Wednesday, April 11, AiOP founder and director Ed Woodham will be in residence at the Endicott College campus, 376 Hale Street, in Beverly to curate an exhibit of site specific installations on the theme of civic engagement, sustainability, and local geography.


The public is invited to submit proposals for a site specific installations or performances on campus and to view the artwork, which will be displayed until the end of April. Mr. Woodham will also be giving a public lecture on Art in Odd Places on Tuesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm in the Little Theater at Halle library, Endicott College, 376 Hale Street, Beverly. The deadline for submitting a proposal is April 1 at midnight. Application forms are available at http://endi.co.tt/wwsBYm and should be submitted to Michael Kilburn at mkilburn@endicott.edu.

Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of interaction and communication in the public realm by presenting visual and performance works in all disciplines in a context outside the confines of traditional art spaces. Through unexpected encounters, ironic juxtapositions and gentle humor, it encourages us to explore the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of daily life and to engage more mindfully and appreciatively with our physical and human environment.

Art in Odd Places began as an action by a group of artists led by Ed Woodham to encourage local participation in the Cultural Olympiad of the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. In 2005, after moving back to New York City, he re-imagined it as an annual festival of the everyday, animated by the goodwill and inventiveness of its participants. It has been an annual event in New York since that time, each October turning the length of 14th street in Manhattan into an open air gallery and performance space.

The founder and director of Art in Odd Places (AiOP), Ed Woodham is an artist, curator, producer, and activist whose work addresses communication in private space and in the public sphere, and interrogates the relationship between art/viewer, performer/spectator. In Atlanta, he founded and directed the multi-disciplinary arts space, 800 East, producing over 250 art events. Woodham created the Bravo documentary series, The It Factor, about actors trying to ‘make it’. He has appeared as a puppeteer in Basil Twist’s Tell Tale, and in the Obie Award winning, Symphonie Fantastique. He also created two puppet works for Arts at St Ann’s Puppet Lab and was awarded a Jim Henson grant. He has led workshops in public art for the School for Visual Art’s Public Art Residency and for Parson’s School of Design. Recently, he curated 'Un-Space Ground', a public art event for the College Arts Association Conference in Los Angeles. In September 2012, he will curate an Art in Odd Places in St. Petersburg, Russia in collaboration with CEC Artslink.

Mr. Woodham’s residency at Endicott College is being coordinated by Associate Professor of Politics and International Studies, Michael Kilburn, who sees it as a chance for the campus to engage in civic and democratic expression.

“Art in Odd Places is a fantastic opportunity for the broader Endicott community to deepen our interactions with our local environment and each other in interesting and unexpected ways. To me, this type of creative social interaction is politics in its purest form. (In fact, the word politics comes from the Greek politeia, meaning public space or public affairs.) Especially in this election year, AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the democratic exchange of ideas. And the element of fun and creativity is a nice antidote to the bitterness, fear-mongering, and cynicism that have lately poisoned our political discourse. I hope this festival provides a chance to reclaim public space, celebrate free expression, and rehabilitate the positive aspects of civic life. It’s also a great opportunity for the College to showcase the talent and imagination of our community and to invite our neighbors to visit this beautiful campus.”

Please contact Professor Kilburn at mkilburn@endicott.edu or by calling 978-232-2147 for more information on the event.

Jessie May - Boston Makeup Artist and Fashion Designer Featured at RAW:natural born artists TONIGHT 3/8/12

"I grew up painting with my grandmother in the woods of Maine, and continued my painting education at many schools throughout Boston. This shows through in the way that I take on applying makeup, it is truly an art to me. I enjoy working with designers to create a look that defines their style. Well versed in a broad range of makeup application and technique, I never turn down a challenge to do something new, more bold or more creative. I've studied abroad in many countries, taking away little snippets of each cultures personal style and incorporated it into my own work."
