Chaffey College and the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art a re pleased to present Occupy the Museum from Sept ember 9 &ndash\; November 23\, 2013. \; The artists&rsquo\; and occupan ts&rsquo\; reception will be September 10 from 6-8pm with light refreshment s and entertainment.

\n

Occupy the Museum re -imagines the museum as a collaborative teaching and learning lab\, and as an experimental space that allows for the exploration of new ideas. During Occupy the Museum\, a number of groups and organi zations that naturally overlap with the museum&rsquo\;s mission to foster c ritical thinking and to encourage innovation and investigation through art will physically inhabit the space during their own two-week sessions. The o ccupants include (u)ntitled: The Wignall Art Organization \, The Chaffey Re view\, Chaffey College Feminists (CC Fem)\, and One Book/One College. Each group has produced a schedule of special events including lectures\, hands- on workshops\, film screenings\, and other kinds of programs that investiga te the intersections of art\, activism\, and inquiry within their own respe ctive missions.

\n

Occupy the Museum opens w ith a small exhibition in the entry gallery featuring one artwork per occup ying group. The exhibition features work from Elana Mann\, The LA Art Girls \, Joe Suzuki\, and Ehren Tool. The works are meant to serve as a jumping o ff point to contextualize the programming in the gallery and to allow slow looking and exploration of art objects. Slow Looking is the act of spending considerable time looking at one work of art\; new discoveries can be made by the viewer\, regardless of expertise\, by spending the time to actively engage and think about the artwork. The artworks will also allow further i nquiry through the Wignall Museum&rsquo\;s initiative &ldquo\;Ask Art: Usin g the Museum to Make Curricular Connections.&rdquo\; An educational guide ( the &ldquo\;Ask Art: Tool Kit&rdquo\;) is available to assist with slow loo king and to encourage broad based interdisciplinary consideration.
