"Collective," an art exhibit featuring Draper student Jean Shepard

NYU and UCATS announce the opening of “Collective,” a multimedia art exhibit.

“Collective” is an exciting multimedia art exhibit featuring UCATS members of New York University. This is the first show of what hopes to become and annual event for the artists of the Union of Clerical, Administrative and Technical Staff at the university. The opening reception will be held at NYU’s Kimmel Center, at 60 Washington Square South, on Dec. 4 from 5 to 8p.m., and the works will be on view Nov. 25 through Jan. 31.

The exhibit is an example of UCATS and NYU coming together as a community to foster and showcase the talents of their members and employees. “It is very encouraging, as an NYU employee, to feel the support of the union and the university towards the abundant creativity of its members and employees respectively,” said Jane O'Mahony, one of the artists represented in the exhibit.

Artists featured in the show are Sarah Bahr, David Fry, Amy Hendy, Sonia Horan, Joan Carol Hutcheson, Roslyn Kelly (Paris Woods), Michael Krieg, Daniel Lega, Ljubisha Milenkovic, Mya K. Myint, Jane O’Mahony, Liz Schnore, Jean Shepard, Mathias Sias, Naomi Tarantal, Michael Tice, Betty Tsang, and Pauline Roony Yeargans.

Some of the works in “Collective” will be displayed in the first-floor windows of the Kimmel Center at 60 Washington Square South, where they can be viewed by passers-by 24 hours a day. The rest of the show will be hung in the center’s Commuter Lounge Gallery and Stovall Family Gallery on the second and eight floors respectively.

The indoor galleries will be open Monday through Wednesday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.; Thursday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-midnight; and Sunday, noon-8 p.m. The center will be closed from Dec. 23 to Jan. 3. Visitors to the indoor galleries must show a government-issued photo ID.
