Artist Q&A and Preview // David B Jang: Systems of Production
Kellogg University Art Gallery – David B Jang: Systems of Production Exhibition Dates Feb. 22 - Apr. 26 2018 The Kellogg University Art Gallery invites you to the preview of our new exhibition "David B Jang: Systems of Production" on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018 from 4-6pm Q&A with artist David B. Jang at 4:30pm Admission is free. David Jang, a Los Angeles-based sculptor born in Seoul, South Korea, is known for inventive kinetic installations which employ hacked consumer electronics and subverted household appliances. By using electro-mechanical engineering techniques to create interactive motorized artforms, Jang is propelled by the notion of the systems of production and what it means to re-direct the short life of cast-off mechanical parts and equipment into genuine objects of supreme beauty. Recycled and repurposed materials, in turn, become approachable, lovely and infinite. This show is the first in the of the "Prequel to 2018" series of exhibitions held at the Kellogg Gallery. Please also join us on Saturday, Feb 24, 2018 from 3-6pm for the opening reception. Admission is free.

Tony - The Movie: Free Film Screening & Panel
Illumination Foundation – Doors open: 6:30pm Screening: 7:00pm Discussion: 8:15pm TONY – THE MOVIE makes its OC premiere Orange Coast River Park and the Newport Beach City Arts Commission in partnership with Illumination Foundation and the Newport Beach Film Festival are presenting the OC premiere of TONY – THE MOVIE, a documentary about homelessness on Thursday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. The free screening takes place at Marina Park Community Center with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Directed by Dennis Stein, this 2017 film revolves around Tony, who ends up homeless after losing his job as a waiter in San Diego, and is faced with the daily struggles of life on the streets. His search for housing begins, but then turns into a quest for solutions to homelessness, not just for himself, but for thousands of people living on the streets across the country. The investigation takes him to the top levels of government locally, but also to regions across the country where progress is being made. What do communities do to significantly reduce homelessness? What is happening in San Diego? And does Tony find housing? Following the screening, there is a panel discussion featuring Dennis Stein, Tony Rodriguez (lead subject) and Paul Leon, president and CEO of Illumination Foundation, beginning at 8:15 p.m. Seating is first come, first served. For more information, visit www.ocriverpark.org and www.tony-themovie.com.
