Ariel Baron-Robbins at work in the USFCAM gallery studio during A Different Frame of MindArtists at Work in “A Different Frame of Mind”

Keesha Jimenez reporting back on the progress of A Different Frame of Mind. It is not every day that one is able to enter an artist’s studio and interact with the artist as they create art. I enjoy capturing their progress through the camera lens because it mirrors the dedication that the artists contribute to their final products. Each day they work in USFCAM, I observe them as they contemplate the steps needed to complete the creative process.


A Different Frame of MindArtists' Interpretations of "A Different Frame of Mind

My name is Keesha Jimenez. I am an undergraduate student seeking a B.A. in Studio Art at USF. For my summer internship at the USFCAM, I am working with Vincent Kral, the Curator of A Different Frame of Mind. As an artist myself, I am interested in the concept behind the title for the exhibition because at USF the art studio professors challenge tradition and force their students to think beyond the box.

The performance was truly a collaborative effort that included USF College of the Arts faculty and students. The USF percussion ensemble and jazz combos played Reyes’ unique instruments, crafted from firearms confiscated and disabled by the Mexican Army. Everyone who attended the sold-out event was invited to participate in the performance, which was created by Reyes in partnership with USF Theatre professor Dora Arreola, and USF and Community Stepping Stones students.
