Creative Community

Creative Community, opening reception, Friday, September 10th, 6-9 P.M., free.

(SCENE) Metrospace, 110 Charles St., will unveil its latest exhibit, “Creative Community,” at a special public opening on Friday, Sept. 10 from 6-9 p.m. The opening reception is free and members of the public are welcome to attend.

With the “Creative Community” exhibit, (SCENE) Metrospace issued a call to the community to participate in three sub-exhibits designed to provide creative individuals with an opportunity to show some of their creative flair.

The “Profile Pics” sub-exhibit (yes, think Facebook™) invited community members to submit up to five serious or silly profiles of themselves (or their family, friends and alter egos) in any format. Photos, paintings and more were accepted.

The “Studio Space” sub-exhibit invited creative people to send in physical documentation of their studios or the space where they create. While most participants sent in photos, other formats were encouraged and accepted.

The “Unrealized Ideas” sub-exhibit asked people to send in some form of physical documentation of art projects or other creative ideas that had never actually been executed for reasons such as a lack of funding. Helena Trindade, of Brazil, provided an ideal submission for this exhibit. She has never been able to find the funding to see her billboards project completed, however; her metallic photos of what the project would look like in real life are beautiful, as is her majestic, unrealized idea.

In a fourth sub-exhibit, (SCENE) Metrospace is pleased to present six pieces from the personal collection of East Lansing resident Henry Brimmer, a graphic designer, photographer and editor of the magazine “Photometro.” This sub-exhibit is being presented in anticipation of initiating a monthly gallery talk series in the near future called, "I Collect."

*Also featuring sumptuous portraits by DeMarcus Smith, of Flint, and small work by local artist Kaern Rose Shinaver.

The “Creative Community” exhibit will be available for public view in the gallery space Sept. 10-Oct. 17 during regular gallery hours.

Regular gallery hours: Thur. 2-5; Fri. & Sat. 2-6; Sun. 12-4. Closed on holidays. 110 Charles Street, Downtown East Lansing, under the multicolored parking ramp.
