Art Cover Cultural Series 2015-16

As downtown York’s art district continues to expand and thrive, providing excellent opportunities for YCP students and alumni and other regional artists to exhibit and sell their work, the York College Galleries contributes the vital role of bringing major artists with national and international reputations to York to exhibit and speak about their work.

In the last two years alone we have hosted exhibitions by New York-based MacArthur Fellow Judy Pfaff; a major installation by Los Angeles-based Wayne White of Pee-wee’s Playhouse fame; an incredible 5-channel video installation and timely street performance by Chicago-based Jefferson Pinder; Sculpture Magazine-reviewed exhibitions by Andi Steele and Carol Prusa of NC and FL respectively, as well as lectures by Rita Duffy of Northern Ireland, Diane Burko of Philadelphia and Deana Haggag, Director of The Contemporary in Baltimore.

Our list of graphic designers who have lectured and served as exhibition jurors includes Rick Valicenti, Ellen Lupton, Paul Sahre, Post Typography, and Matteo Bologna. Our 2015/16 gallery program, profiled in the following pages, offers another great lineup of major artists including Sue Coe, Hank Willis Thomas, Sarah Maple, Gaia and Luba Lukova among several others.

The York College Galleries comprises the adjacent Cora Miller and Brossman Galleries in Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall where most of our major exhibitions are held, and the Coni Wolf Gallery at Marketview Arts in downtown York where we host monthly First Friday exhibitions and special events.
