Untitled(Public Display), is an exhibition in progress. The gallery space of the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center will evolve as artists Christie Blizard and Mark Menjivar collaborate with each other, the surrounding community and gallery visitors. Works will be added, taken out of the space, and the process documented on a hand drawn map of the community that will serve as a focal point of the exhibition. The crux of the exhibition is to offer the surrounding community and audience the opportunity to play an active role throughout the duration of the exhibition. It is a work in progress where everyone is invited to participate. This project is as reliant upon its audience as it is on the artists participating.
