Third Space is designed to temporarily disrupt the school environment and the traditional learning experience through the installation of transformative works of art. They aim to partner with six schools in the Indianapolis metropolitan area over the course of the 2019-2020 school year to interject art not only into the physical space but also into the curriculum. At each school, an artwork, created by an established local artist, will be on display for one week, and serve as provocation for students to discover, uncover, and construct their own meaning. The students, guided by their teachers and Arts for Learning teaching artists, will be challenged to see things—from the space in which the artwork is sited to how learning typically occurs in the classroom—in new ways and to reflect on and share their individual perspectives; they will be introduced to museum-quality art that causes them to acknowledge the extraordinary and to experience surprise, wonderment, and curiosity

  • serve as a liaison between the artists and schools

  • work with their Marketing & Communications Specialist to produce press releases, social media and blog posts, flyers and take-home materials for the open house events, and other related promotional materials, and
