Catalyst, features the work of New York artist Amy Yoes. Yoes creates site-specific installations, designed to complement the architecture and location in which she works. Her installation for the museum is the first site-specific installation in the series and the first to involve a major collaborative element with students in the Department of Art. The installation illustrates her multi-faceted working method that includes the use of sculpture, installation, film, and photography to build intriguing and interactive architectural environments. Yoes was educated at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has received awards for her work from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. Her work has been exhibited at venues such as the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, the Cranbrook Art Museum, and Artspace, New Haven, among others. She is currently working on an animation piece at the Wexner Center for the Arts, in Columbus, Ohio. This exhibition and artist lecture is sponsored by the FUNd at CSU with support from the Lilla B. Morgan Fund and the Best Western University Inn.
