DESCRIPTION

NURTUREart is pleased to present #ArtistsBeLike, curated by Project Curate and Loney Abrams and featuring artists: Mikkel Carl, Mitchell Charbonnequ, Emily Clayton, Andrea Crespo, Justin Kemp, Michael Pybus and Paul Wiersbinski

Coming of age in a virtual world, we communicate in emoticons and images, through avatars and screen names. We sometimes have trouble distinguishing art from the rest of what we see online, where most everything could be art but isn't, or is art but doesn't look like it. This group exhibition brings together 7 artists from around the globe and found online. They offer is new perspectives on our own experiences growing up on the web. 

Project Curate provides a class of advanced art students from Juan Morel Campos High School an opportunity to experience contemporary curatorial practices by working closely with a professional curator for the whole school year, culminating with an exhibition at NURTUREart Gallery. This year their mentor is Loney Abrams, Co-Director of hotelart.us and ThereTherebiz.biz. Project Curate is part of NURTUREart's Education Outreach Program, dedicated to nurturing and enriching the next generation with unique art programs that connect practicing artists and curators with students and teachers.
