Making art is an active pursuit. Artists draw, paint, sculpt, form, map, chart, blend, weld, cut, film, etc. The list goes on and on. So Moving is about the motion of creating art; it also explores the very idea of movement.
So Moving will be used as a teaching tool for Rush Education Programs and will support the 2011/12 Rush Education Programs theme, Movement.
Rush Education Department is thrilled to be collaborating with St. Joseph’s college gallery, dance department
and Professor Stacey Temple as we explore our Year of Movement. Rush students will perform again in the
St. Joseph’s College Dance recital this spring.
The Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation is dedicated to providing urban youth with significant exposure and access to the arts, as well as providing exhibition opportunities to underrepresented artists and artists of color. The organization was founded in 1995 by brothers Russell, Danny and Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons. Tangie Murray serves as Executive Director, Meridith McNeal is Director of Education and David Camacho is Education Coordinator.
