Everyone’s personal experience at DAVA contributes to the diversity of mediums and concepts taught in programs. This exhibition includes works in a variety of media by DAVA’s teaching staff Viviane Le Courtois, Krista Robinson, Luzia Ornelas, Alberto Veronica, Rudi Monterosso, Jessica Gross and Marta Flores. Volunteers Dan Four Thunders and Molly Jones add to the mix. The exhibition includes works in a wide range of media, including ceramic, sculpture, fiber art, painting and video installation. This is a rare opportunity to meet and view works by DAVA staff, all of whom are professional working artists working alongside youth.
All staff influence DAVA students through teaching and mentoring. In turn, all are inspired by students on a variety of ways. Viviane Le Courtois will exhibit crochet and candy sculptures commenting on obesity and nutrition while Dan Four Thunders will comment on substance abuse issues among Native Americans. Alberto Veronica and Molly Jones, will present new functional works in clay. Through an interactive video installation, Luzia Ornelas presents her focus on interactive digital media. Marta Flores recycles materials and crochet in elaborate purses and belts. The high level of experimentation and sharing contributes to the daily creative atmosphere at DAVA
