Common Space is an exhibition of projects by four artists whose work either addresses issues associated with a particular locality and/or uses the concept of localized engagement as a starting point for the production of work. By addressing “the local” these artists hope to shed light on global issues of public space, neighborhood, and civic culture. Artists included: Lynn Susholtz, David Krimmel, Omar Pimienta, David White. Lynn Susholtz/Stone Paper Scissors is presenting four interactive projects that highlight community engagement in several San Diego neighborhoods. These participatory pieces are an ongoing collaboration with City College Art Dept. and Crawford High School New Arrival students. Students and gallery participants share their stories and memories from their home countries and experiences of community, gallery participants will have the opportunity to engage in a gift exchange- considering how objects embody meaning and history, and you will join your “new neighbors” in a giant board game and collectively build public space.
