The Public Safety Center selection committee at the University of Central Florida would like this project to result in a memorial to UCF Police Officers fallen in the line of duty. The committee has identified the exterior courtyard to the building entrance as the ideal location for the memorial. The courtyard dimensions are 22'8" X 17'6" and will serve as the main thoroughfare to and from the Public Safety and Police Department. The winning proposal will include a solution for including the names of past and fallen future officers. There is no entry fee and the art allocation for this project is $43,000.

(Lynn, MA – February 2, 2009 ) - - LynnArts will host an opening reception for three new exhibits on February 14, 2009 from 2pm-4pm: Wearable Art – a group exhibit juried by MFA curator Lauren D. Whitley; New Work by Denyse Murphy, a solo exhibit of cyanotype prints, and Notan art work by young artists from Saugus High School, in the Hartman Leigh Children's Gallery. Each exhibit opens to the public on February 5, and runs through March 13, 2009.

Wearable Art showcases work made for and about the body, and includes fiber arts, clothing, jewelry, sculpture and more. The show features the work of over 25 artists from throughout New England.

She holds an MA in Museum Studies from the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, and received her BA in Art History from Trinity College, Hartford, CT. Whitley has worked at the MFA since 1992 during which time she curated several exhibitions including High Style and Hoop Skirts, 1850s Fashion and Threads on the Edge, The Daphne Farago Fiber Art Collection and The Quilts of Gee’s Bend.

Denyse Murphy's solo exhibit will be on display in LynnArts' Willow Community Gallery. The exhibit features a body of work created with cyanotype photography, india ink, and paints, blurring the line between photography and painting.
