#Repost @caforthearts ・・・ Day 2 of Arts, Culture & Creativity Month. How are you defining the impact arts makes in your life and community? Today, let's look at the "Creative Economy". When in 2013 the Bureau of Economic Analysis started to include "intangible assets" arts and culture were included in the form of "entertainment originals". In the most recent data from BEA, Art & Culture production in CA accounted for 7% of the State's economy, equating to $185.5 Billion and 4% of state employment. This is ahead of industries such as Agriculture and Transportation. As someone recently coined, we are no longer the icing on the cake, we are the cake! And yet "One troubling finding: there has been a substantial decline in the level of government funding for arts-based education programs for the past couple of decades." THIS IS WHY WE MUST CONTINUE TO ADVOCATE! #artscreateimpact #CAisTheStateoftheArts #Jointhemovement. Sign up today for Arts Advocacy Day!

#Repost @ucrarts ・・・ Opening Feb. 9 at the California Museum of Photography at UCR ARTS! * Mirror Mirror * Photographs by Darryl Curran; new photographic work by Karchi Perlmann, Andrew K. Thompson, Jonas Yip, and Jody Zellen. * “Mirror Mirror” features a building taking a picture of itself. On Sunday, June 7, 1987, photographer Darryl Curran set about to transform the closed Kress department store in downtown Riverside into a walk-in camera obscura. * The pictures, Curran states, are “a result of the building taking a picture of itself.” They are self-reflexive. They are building selfies. * Image: Darryl Curran, “Untitled,” from the “Kress Building Project,” 1987, courtesy of the artist. #ucrartsdowntown #ucrarts #californiamuseumofphotography #cmp #downtownriverside #kressbuilding @cityofriverside @livinginriverside @hey_riverside @whatsradinriverside @riverside_downtown @getsocialie @riversideartalliance @theartsarea @riverside_neighbors @ucriversideofficial @ucrhighlandernews @lifeatucr @aspb_ucr @ucrsrc @ucrchass @ucrnews @ucrstudentlife @ucr_saa
#Repost @jonasyipphotography I'm honored to be one of the artists invited to create work for this exhibit coming up soon at the @ucrarts California Museum of Photography. Opens Feb 9! "Mirror Mirror invited four contemporary southern California artists to respond to [Darryl] Curran’s work. Following Curran’s lead (and in several instances employing his images), Karchi Perlmann (@karchi_p), Andrew K. Thompson (@andrew_k_thompson), Jonas Yip (@jonasyip ), and Jody Zellen use the museum—its archive, history, online manifestations, and camera collection—to produce additional, inventive institutional self-portraits." - Douglas McCulloh (curator) Mirror Mirror California Museum of Photography February 9 - May 12, 2019 Read more at the #ucrartsblock #cmp website https://artsblock.ucr.edu #riverside #inlandempire #californiamuseumofphotography #ucr
