Works by New York based painter Kimia Ferdowsi Kline are featured at the Elaine L. Jacob Gallery as part of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) artist residency program hosted by the James Pearson Duffy Department of Art and Art History, Wayne State University, Detroit, MI. The exhibition, As Above, So Below: Works by Kimia Kline, is on display in the Jacob Gallery, April 8 through June 24, 2016, with an opening reception on Friday, April 8, 5-8PM. The Jacob Gallery is in the Old Main Annex building - enter at 480 W. Hancock Street. Kline was born in Nashville in 1984. She earned an MFA in visual arts at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2011, and a BFA in painting at Washington University, St. Louis, in 2008. In 2011, she was awarded an artist residency at the Dune in southern India, where she lived and painted for eight months. In 2014, she was named a Makehouse Residency sponsored artist. Kline curates the art collection of Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn. She is represented by Turn Gallery in New York and Marrow Gallery in San Francisco. Most recently, as a finalist for the Basil Alkazzi Award in Painting, Kline was granted a residency through NYFA. For five weeks she painted and taught in partnership with Wayne State University. One outcome of the residency is this solo exhibition held at Wayne State's Elaine L. Jacob Gallery.
Walk [Wayne State] Installation!
May 5 2016 at 1:00 PM
Various locations throughout Midtown
Walking weather is here and Walk [Wayne State] is ready to launch! Thanks to everyone who shared ideas for sign locations and destinations. We have 82 signs ready to post, but we need your help. We are looking for volunteers to hit the pavement and attach signs to designated lampposts and street signs throughout Midtown. Signs will be posted through December 2016.  We will be posting signs around the Main and Medical Campuses and neighborhoods around the university between 1-5PM Thursday and Friday, May 5 and 6. Volunteers are needed for any amount of time - just 15 minutes or the full 4 hours! Walk [Wayne State] is one of several placemaking initiatives coordinated by Wayne State's Office of Economic Development. This project aims to direct pedestrians and cyclists to nearby destinations of interest, and encourage walking and biking as sustainable and healthy forms of transportation.
