Copper Mountain Community College is located in the high desert area near beautiful Joshua Tree National Park. As a way of enliven-ing campus culture and engaging in the spirit of community outreach, the college is inviting PSAM Artists Council members to participate in a unique exhibition opportunity.

The Experimental Exhibition, scheduled April 1, through May 31, 2017 will provide selected artists the opportunity to create site-specific works at various outdoor locations throughout the college’s bucolic desert campus. Rather than being designated areas for the placement of premade works of art, the sites are unique and in-tended to be starting points of inspiration for the creation of unusual works. Themed works relating to education are encouraged but not required.
As a way to enhance the educational experience at CMC, Art stu-dents will participate in the selection of exhibiting artists. CMC stu-dents will also be available to assist artists during the installation process, and will act as stewards of the installed works for the dura-tion of the show.
