SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Visual Frequency – a student exhibition will be featured in the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art’s Dutton Family Gallery at California State University, San Bernardino beginning February 3 and running through February 19. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 6-8 p.m. (preview at 5:30 p.m.). The closing reception will be Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 4-6 p.m., with an Artist talk at 3 p.m.
Visual Frequency is a multi-media group exhibition that examines the multiple uses and expressions inherent in sign-based forms of visual communication. This exhibition reflects the many possibilities in which signage can be the voice of a community by transmitting information, humor, political positions and social awareness on key issues facing society. The artworks in Visual Frequency project the aesthetic language made familiar in the commercial signs of the retail world of advertising and the language established in the Pop Art movement of the 20th century while simultaneously being personalized forms of artistic expression.
The artworks in Visual Frequency are the culmination of the 2019 Artist in Residence Program; a partnership between the CSUSB Department of Art and Design and the Riverside Art Museum. This inaugural program began in Fall 2019 with Coachella-based artist Armando Lerma, whose work is currently shown along with student works. This program is made possible by a grant from the New California Art Fund and the James Irvine Foundation along with support from the College of Arts and Letters, CSUSB.
