What is the project?
“If it's the eve of a new year, so it's clean sweep/confession time. Here goes. I confess - I'm a pusher. An art pusher. I hope that one of the effects of writing these columns is to get people "hooked" on art.” - Hunter Ingalls, ArtBeat 12.31.06
The Arts Pusher Project (the Project) has the expressed intention of facilitating a sense of community and collaboration amongst Amarillo’s artistic community. Our goal is push the arts. We will do this through group shows, collaborative shows, art education programs, and community events.
Arts Pusher is not a project, but instead a series of projects. The first expansion of this project is titled Collaborating with Hunter Ingalls.
This expansion includes an exhibition and communal art project on Feb. 9th, 2012 (near Hunter’s birthday) at Process Art House to coincide with the production and development of the first of a multiple volume series of full length books to be launched in April of 2012 at the Feast of the Overpass, a beloved local event. Over 25 local artists were assigned a poem of Hunter's. Each artist is responding to the work in his or her own way for the exhibition. After the opening event, the works will be compiled along with the poetry in a re-publication of 65 Word Stars, Hunter's most popular book of poems.
The second expansion of the Arts Pusher Project will culminate with another group show in October of 2012. More details on this expansion will be available soon.
