Abby Donovan, professor of art and design, is part of the 181 Collective, which will be conducting a residency at Jemez Springs, New Mexico’s Mission Street Arts in October. Over the course of their residency at Mission Street Arts the 181 Collective will sketch together, collect, and build, all with an eye toward a "one night only!" situational composition. This performative event will be free to the public and will take place on Friday October 9th beginning at twilight and winding throughout Jemez Springs (a parade of sorts). 181 Collective is made up of Brandon Boan, Abby Donovan, Tom Hughes, and Jason Rhodes. These artists will be in residence from October 2nd through October 9th at the Mission Street Arts studios. Various special guest artists from across the country will also participate via the internet including Brittany De Nigris, Aaron K. Hoffer, Mike Marks, Phil McGaughy, Joe Netta, Mike Roche, Charlotte Thurman, and Jacob Zimmerman. Many elements of the event can be viewed from a distance and online. Covid-19 safety guidelines will be enforced.
