Reception Party for the 2010 Lift Off Artists

Friday, May 28, 6-8pm (cash bar and appetizers)

The 6th Annual Lift Off exhibition opens this weekend at the ICA. Please join us for this celebration with the artists, friends and families. This show marks the culmination of two to three years of intensive investigation by students in the Fine Arts program at SJSU and launches the graduates into the next chapter of their artistic pursuits.

The exhibition features sculpture, photography, painting, mixed media and new media, and includes works by: Kirkman Amyx, Pernilla Andersson, Tracy Burk, shiloh burton, Yunan Cao, Wendy Crockett, Jim Edgeworth, Johnny Hanna, Hedwig Heerschop, Barbara Horiuchi, Trevor Koch, John Pickelle, Beverly Rayner, Elizabeth Rivera, Danielle Siembieda, Susan Suriyapa, and Hongbiao Wang.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the MFA graduates have published a catalog of their work with essays by Art History Master Degree candidates Tariq Abdul-Wahad, Sarah Goodman, Heather Peterson, Maayan Glaser-Koren and Samantha Johnson.

Lift Off is an extension of the ICA’s commitment to provide meaningful opportunities for emerging artists to present their work to the public.  The ICA is always excited to present the work of new artists and develop a collaboration with a diverse group
of art makers and thinkers who reflect the cultural vibrancy of our community.

We hope you can join us for this very special evening.  Lift Off will be on view in the Main Gallery through June 19th.
