Link Project - Help us with artists names

Hello MBMAG Members!

We need help crediting artists who made some of the links in our MBMAG Link Project. We have been tasked with labeling this work for the August opening of Surf, Sand, Silversmiths show at PVAC.

Our deadline for labeling is July 15.

Can anyone help? If you can identify the artist(s) who created any of the links in this post please email Rhonda Sprague at rhondasprague@sbcglobal.net.

We would really like to credit the artist who have contributed to this amazing Link Project. Thank you for your help!

Keep the “Community” in Community Colleges!

If you’ve ever benefited from the classes at a community college near you, please take the time to read about the repeatability regulations that went into effect in September of 2013.

“…In addition to reducing access for all students/community members, these changes will have a devastating impact on visual and performing arts across the state. Without changes to these regulations, the depth and breadth of community college arts programs, which have been built for over fifty years, will crumble.  (Arts and physical education students throughout the state are particularly impacted the regulations. While students can, in the case of a “content-related family,” repeat a course up to four times, they can only take a total of four courses in a content-related family. This significantly limits the success and access for students who must repeat courses multiple times in order to become proficient.)…”
