Dulce Ibarra is a senior undergraduate student at CSULB. She is currently seeking a Bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Sculpting. Ms. Ibarra works for a non-profit organization that help children learn about art. She believes that ” A child should be able to find passion or inspiration for their art from a young age”. She is very proud and full of pride about her background, and of her father’s occupation. Ms. Dulce Ibarra hopes to one day be as prideful of her work.
Walking into the exhibit the first thing you saw was a video being projected onto an empty wall across from the entrance. On either side there seemed to be canvas bags slightly filled with branches of a plant of some sort. In front of that there was an artificial grass strip. All around there were strip or patches of artificial grass, some had golden tools on top. There were also golden tools on the wall.
Manos De Oro within the exhibit there were various gardening tools, all of which had been painted color gold in some way or another. Some were hung on the wall, while other were displayed on small patches of artificial grass. The largest items in the room were lawnmowers and a video being displayed on the adjacent wall. It was a video shot on a Nikon, the video portrayed the artist father working in a garden. The background music to the film ” Mi Viejo” was sung by Piero. ( THANK YOU SHAZAM)
