Looking for Volunteer Mentors for Art-Based Mentoring Program

Are you interested in serving as a mentor for the 2009-2010 Space Of Her Own (SOHO) program? SOHO serves at-risk 5th grade girls from Alexandria. SOHO is an art-based mentoring program in which volunteer mentors are paired each paired with a SOHO girl. Together, girls and mentors meet weekly to learn life skills, eat a healthful dinner, and do art lessons, culminating with a “Trading Spaces”-style room renovation at the end! This is a year-long program, and mentors must commit to a full year, attending every Thursday night from October through June.

We will be holding a meeting for prospective mentors on Thursday, August 27th at 5:30 p.m. If you are interested in serving as a mentor, e-mail Kate at kateg@theartleague.org and she can provide you with more information on the program and upcoming mentor recruitment and orientation meeting. RSVPS REQUIRED TO ATTEND.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
