Greetings everyone! We are excited to announce that Spectrum ArtWorks has a new program coordinator, Jes Reyes! Taking over as Arts Specialist for Spectrum ArtWorks - we welcome her with great warmth and enthusiasm. We are happy to share that she brings with her a rich background and involvement in the arts as well as a great deal of compassion for the work of Spectrum ArtWorks artists and their mission.
Jes Reyes is excited to join the Spectrum ArtWorks program. She comes to the program from the NWCSP, a drop-in program in Crystal, Minnesota. While there she worked with adults with serious and persistent mental illness. She helped initiate various art projects at the CSP, including Photovoice and Picture Us. She also has been involved in the Twin Cities arts community as a curator of pop-up exhibits with Altered Esthetics, a non-profit arts organization and gallery. Jes is a filmmaker and photographer. Her photo "The Eyes" will be exhibiting at Glam Doll Donuts in Minneapolis in September as part of a group exhibition. She is about to finish her Master's degree in Liberal Studies from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. You can find out more about her by following her blogs: http://museummoon.tumblr.com or http://jesreyes.tumblr.com.
Please join us in our excitement welcoming Jes to Spectrum ArtWorks!
