The Arts Council for Long Beach is proud to present Place and Time: The 2013 Professional Artist Fellows, an exhibition curated by Jeff Rau of Sixpack Projects, honoring all of the artists recently awarded Professional Artist Fellowship grants by the Arts Council for Long Beach. The exhibition features recent work from artists Terry Braunstein, Shyamala Moorty, Jeff Rau, Hiromi Takizawa, and P. Williams. The work includes painting, photography, sculpture, video and installation.

Place and Time explores the themes of both place and time as they relate within each individual artist's oeuvre, and as they build connections between all of the exhibited works, hinting at common contemporary concerns. By including all current Professional Artist Fellows, the exhibition offers a diverse cross-section of the Long Beach artist community, representing a snapshot of the creative community in a particular place and time.

The Collaborative: A project of the Arts Council for Long Beach and Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA) present exhibitions that raise awareness of both emerging artists and innovative approaches to art. This unique partnership is made possible through collaboration with LYON Communities and the City of Long Beach Development Services.

The Arts Council for Long Beach is a private nonprofit organization, which fosters excellence in the creation and presentation of arts and cultural endeavors in Long Beach. The Arts Council provides access for families, children, and the community to a broad spectrum of cultural experiences by building strategic partnerships and programs that weave arts and culture into the fabric of our community.
