In the Spotlight: VPAM hosts discussion with exhibiting artist


By Jesus Figueroa

Artist Shizu Saldamando will discuss “When You Sleep: A Survey of Shizu Saldamando” on Saturday starting at 1 p.m. at the Vincent Price Art Museum.

Saldamando will be available to sign the accompanying catalogue created specifically for this exhibit.

The catalogue was crowd funded through USA Projects with support from more than 100 of Shizu’s family, friends and supporters.

VPAM director Karen Rapp, along with other staff of the VPAM, helped in making both the exhibit and book a reality.

As an introduction, Rapp will explain the reason behind having Saldamando exhibit her first solo musuem exhibit.

Writer Raquel Gutiérrez, who has also been a subject of Saldamando’s art, wrote an essay entitled “What is revealed when you sleep,” to better explain the purpose of the exhibit.
