DESCRIPTION

The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to present, “CONTENTS PEPEEK JOURNEYS…” an exhibition featuring works by artists and designers from the Creative Action Program at Otis College of Art and Design and the ECF Westside Art Center, a nonprofit program that mentors adult artists with developmental disabilities.

CONTENTS PEPEEK JOURNEYS… is the culmination of blending processes and ideas between ECF’s Westside Art Center and undergraduate students enrolled in Otis College’s Uniquely Abled course taught by Michele Jaquis and Marlena Donohue. Over the course of 13 weeks, the collaborative groups shared work space and conversations, exchanged materials and processes, and ultimately produced mixed-media paintings, drawings, sculptures, and animations. The works on view are the result of fluid, imaginative interactions between two groups of creative thinkers from a variety of artistic interests and cognitive capacities, all expressing and exploring art as equals.

The Uniquely Abled course was conceived of by artist/educator Michele Jaquis, to engage Otis students and ECF artists in the benefits – and beauty – of diverse and inclusive collaborations. This class is part of the Otis College Creative Action program, directed by Richard Shelton, an on-going, ground-breaking series of interdisciplinary classes linking art and design education to real-world experiences that enhance the missions of community partners.
