Work of UCSF Artists on Display at Laurel Heights
A reception celebrating the art of staff and faculty at Laurel Heights will be held on Thursday, June 27, 3 to 4:30 p.m., on Sub Level 1 of that building.
The Empact! Presents Laurel Heights Art Exhibit opened last week to showcase some hidden talents of staff and faculty.
It is a rotating exhibit that will display different works every six months. The current artists, all UCSF members at Laurel Heights, on display are: Beverly Eschenburg, Stuart Gansky, Monjett Graham, Marc Ellen Hamel, Roberta Heidt, Tamar Horwitz, Lin Maslow, Brenda Nussey, Aileen Tam, Marilyn Vella and Jack Webster.
"This is the result of a grassroots effort," said Red Mangio, Empact! volunteer and outreach coordinator. "The outreach team at Laurel Heights worked with Facilities Management and the Millberry Programs and Services Conference Center to make this happen."
The reception on Thursday will include light refreshments and an opportunity for attendees to meet the artists. Randy Lopez, assistant vice chancellor-Human Resources, and Nancy Adler, director of the Center for Health and Community, will speak on behalf of art at Laurel Heights.
Other art work by UCSF staff and faculty at Laurel Heights will be displayed at the Conference Center after the reception.
The Empact! Laurel Heights outreach team will also promote its "adopt a wall" program, which in the near future will encourage departments to either buy art or sponsor display cases.
