The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project

BY PETER SVARZBEIN
@ VOL 13 ON JUN 23, 2016

"These were vehicles of economic mobility."

In The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol. 13, Peter Svarzbien shares his project to get El Paso's trolleys running again as they did in their heyday. Svarzbien is a photographer, artist and now city Councilman of El Paso. He once imagined the historic streetcars returning to the streets of El Paso again with his MFA masters thesis "The El Paso Transnational Trolley Project." Several years later, this project no longer resides only in our imaginations as the first tracks are now being laid in the streets of El Paso for the new streetcar line. With El Paso's first streetcar line in many years now under construction Peter is not content to stop here, but is now gathering political support to push for the restoration of trolley service over the international bridge - reconnecting Juarez and El Paso's fabled international streetcar service. Peter's presentation inspires us to consider how art can operate on a grand city scale to improve our quality of life. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, July 20th, 2016.

The Art of Active Working Metaphors

BY RICH HAPTONSTALL
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

To FVCC theatre professor Rich Haptonstall, set design is an "active working metaphor": not only does it have to be comparable and representative of real life, but it has to be a living, moving artform. As the three stories in this presentation demostrate, knowing how to use visual cues such as shape, color, and texture allow Haptonstall to illusrate the essence of the play and the characters therin.

Арт-проект для школьников Камчатки

BY NATALIA KOTOMINA
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 11, 2018

Художник-акварелист Наталия Котомина расскажет о том, как участие в одном социальном проекте принесло неожиданные плоды:

— Занимаясь с детьми творчеством, я стараюсь найти новые, интересные варианты совместного изучения искусства. Так появилась идея арт-проектов, в которых мы объединяем различные виды искусства, исследовательскую деятельность и арт-терапевтический подход. С одним из таких проектов я побывала на Камчатке в январе этого года.
