Our second class meeting.
Next to the Alhambra Theater in the Adam’s Gallery for planning.
Walking from our new “classroom” to our Art House!
We are all about to experience, for the first time for each of us, the interior of the house. Who knows what we are going to find!
Thankfully, the house was not a disaster just in a bit of disarray.

The first room before clean up.
View from the first room looking back toward the 2nd room
2nd room from before, we found a wedding dress with a train in the closet off to the left side of this frame, we hope to incorporate it into the finished product.
The door on the left, where the light emanates from, is the bathroom, two closets are positioned behind the door.
This image reminds me of the experience we shared as we entered. My classmates, professor, and I all went urban exploring (with permission of course) in our “new house”. One themes we pulled from our initial experience was that of wonder and finding out the unknown, much like when we were children and everything was new and full of unexplored territory. We want to integrate this idea into the house for sure: giving people an experience that they will remember in a positive, or at least not negative, light.
We began cleaning out the house Saturday morning, May 17th 2014. After less than an hour, the 10 of us had the house empty and organized. Then we met to discuss what we were going to do with the interior space. We brainstormed and landed on a few common ideas we wanted to pursue. For our next class we will have sketches and proposals for how we are going to execute our designs (DES9s).
Venius Meiggs: Evansville local and an amazing jewelry maker.
I first met Venius at Sculpt EVV a few years ago and I see her at every local arts and craft show I make it to. Her work is amazing and crosses a variety of styles.

It has been a long run, but the kickstarter video has been launched!!
The official kickstarter can be found using this link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/667737205/house-installationa-sculpt-evv-parallel-project
Here is the information as well:
USI’s summer art class has been granted access to transform an unoccupied house into an immersive art experience.
The University of Southern Indiana’s ART 489 Special Projects-Outdoor Sculpture Exhibits Class has been given permission to transform a house into an installation sculpture.
On May 14, 2014 class will begin, and each undergraduate student will learn about the various types of existing installations based from building structures listed here:
2. A location for metaphors of self-reflection and comments on particular issues
Example: Judy Chicago–At Home
4. Walls as a 3-dimensional canvas and using the house’s forms as a surface for design, an internal sculpture
5. Home galleries
Then students will brainstorm and create a complete vision and message for the house and find the best methods of completion. Dr. Braysmith will teach the class the difference between infinite creativity in the arts and the practicality of time and money constraints.
The group of students, with backgrounds in woodworking, painting, photography, graphic design, and sculpture will work together in a multi-disiplinary fusion to create an installation piece of art using the house as a base.
The location is 318 Jefferson Street in Evansville, Indiana 47713, USA.
The house project will be a parallel project in conjunction with Sculpt EVV.
“EVV” is Evansville—all of us—and “sculpt” means we are all creating our city together through art, music, food and community.
Sculpt EVV consists of four components and will take place on June 7th on the Corner of Jefferson Avenue and S.E. 2nd Street, this event is free and open to the public:
–African Art Popup Show
–Live R & B Music
–Hands on Activities for Children
–Artist Installation Project with USI students and neighborhood hood youths using recycled wooden pallets
*All permissions from Brownfield Corporation (the owner of the property) and the University of Southern Indiana to access this property and create in it have already been acquired.
Risks and challenges
Choosing a project
Since we will be working on this project as a team, the students will need to collaborate but also be willing to compromise. As upperclassmen, we have had experience working in teams to achieve the best results, we will also be working under Dr. Braysmith who has organized Sculpt EVV with her classes two years pervious.
Staying within the Budget
We will learn to differential between the infinite possibilities that creativity breeds and the practicality of time and money constraints. Before we spend any of the money, our class will decide which materials will be the highest priority and how we will be able to reduce our cost through looking for donated materials.
