ArtsCorps students curate I Wish I Knew Who I Was Before I Was Me at Frye Art Museum

From the ArtsCorps e-newsletter:



I Wish I Knew Who I Was Before I Was Me was initiated by the Frye Art Museum in collaboration with Arts Corps and curated by Arts Corps students from Youngstown Cultural Arts Center with Arts Corps' MusicianCorps fellow Amos Miller and teaching artist Roberto Ascalon. This project was inspired by, and opens in conjunction with, the exhibit, "Tim Rollins and K.O.S.: A History".



Over the course of several months, students participated in the behind-the-scenes operations of the Museum, working together with Ascalon and Miller to select objects from the Frye's permanent collection and to determine an exhibition theme and title. Incorporating music, poetry, and spoken word, I Wish I Knew Who I Was Before I Was Me includes the students' responses to the artwork they chose for the exhibition.
