Getty 2015 Multicultural Undergraduate Internship:
Educational, University Art Museum, California State University Long Beach

In Fall of 2015, The University Art Museum, in collaboration with the Getty Conservation Institute and the Museum of Latin American Art, will present FAR−SITED: Creating and Conserving Art in Public Places, a three−day conference examining new trends in public art, the use of new technologies and alternative practices, and the role of conservation for art in the public realm. Nationally renowned arts professionals will engage in curated panels and presentations for an audience of artists, conservators, arts administrators, historians, scholars, and students. Using the the fiftieth anniversary of the historic 1965 California International Sculpture Symposium as the catalyst for the conference, FAR−SITED seeks to explore the possibilities and the challenges of creating and presenting art in public places for the 21st Century.

The 1965 California International Sculpture Symposium, held on the campus of California State University, Long Beach, was the first international sculpture symposium to be held in the United States, the first to occur on a college campus, and the first to build partnerships with industry to create innovative sculptures using new industrial materials and new technologies. Internationally recognized artists worked with industrial partners, such as Bethlehem Steel, Fellows and Stewart Shipyard, and North American Aviation in the creation of these landmark works, and the program inspired the famous LACMA Art and Technology initiative (1967−71).

FAR−SITED: Creating & Conserving Art in Public Places will be held on the campus of California State University, Long Beach and at the Museum of Latin American Art and presented in conjunction with an initiative to conserve the public art on campus in partnership with the Getty Conservation Institute, as well as an exhibition at the University Art Museum, which will examine the historic importance of the 1965 California International Sculpture Symposium. The exhibition opens September 8, 2015.

Getty 2015 Multicultural Undergraduate Internship:
Curatorial, University Art Museum, California State University Long Beach

In 1965, California State College at Long Beach (now California State University, Long Beach/CSULB), hosted the California International Sculpture Symposium, thanks to the dedicated efforts of Sculpture Professor Kenneth Glenn. Nine monumental and strikingly modern sculptures were realized by an international cadre of distinguished artists, including Kengiro Azuma (Japan), J.J. Beljon (Netherlands), Andre Bloc (France), Kosso Eloul (Israel), Claire Falkenstein (United States), Gabriel Kohn (United States), Piotr Kowalski (Poland), Rita Letendre (Canada), and Robert Murray (Canada). The minimalist works were sited across the campus by CSULB master planner, architect Edward A. Killingsworth (1917–2004) to work synergistically with the modernist architecture of the campus. The symposium was significant in many ways. The first sculpture symposium in the United States; the first to occur on a college campus; the first to link artists with new technology and industrial materials; and the first to create partnerships with industry. The symposium left a lasting legacy to the Los Angeles region.

In the Fall of 2015, the University Art Museum at CSULB will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the California International Sculpture Symposium with an exhibition commemorating the works on campus and the symposium’s focus on art and new technology, an emphasis now reflected in the mission of the UAM and integrated into the ongoing curatorial efforts. The exhibition is one of three major initiatives in development at the UAM to celebrate the anniversary of the sculpture symposium. Prior to the exhibition, the museum established a conservation initiative in partnership with the Getty Conservation Institute to conserve the 1965 sculptures and ensure the works’ future place on the campus.
