WHO I AM:
"Cristina Mariotta is a student at Arts & Services for Disabled, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic art-based programs to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities since its founding in 1982. Over the years, ASD has collaborated with many community programs in an effort to help all individuals become more productive citizens and support them in their efforts to be as independent as possible.
Similar to the rest of the artists that attend ASD, Cristina does not let her disability get the best of her creative abilities. She is young, kind, and not afraid to show her emotions. From day to day, Cristina handles life challenges by exploring them through art. Her artistic abilities are strategic and ideas are well defined.
Cristina states, “I am good. I want friends, family, staff to know I’m good.” And when asked what she wanted to name this show, Cristina replied without hesitation “Who I am.” A title that is as clear and concise as her artwork. Curated by Cristina and ASD program director, Colin Carri, “Who I Am” will showcase her experimentation with different mediums and connections that relate to personal events from her past, present, and future happenings."
"...is a group exhibition featuring CSULB School of Art graduate students. This eclectic grouping of artworks take the form of illustration, installation, painting, photography, performance, and social practice. Though stylistically diverse, the work collectively touches on the flexibility of meaning within the realm of the game and its ties to perception, connection, and understanding. Specifically, we learn from our surroundings by playing with and against them. Furthermore, the exhibition showcases artwork aligned with ideas of an play, competition, engagement, and the elusive moment. Little Games is curated by Michael Nannery, a CSULB School of Art graduate student."
