Museum program features recent CBU grad

RIVERSIDE (August 14, 2012) - Lydia Young Ha Kim, a recent graduate of California Baptist University, is one of four local university students involved in the Riverside Art Museum’s (RAM) Curatorial Council pilot program.

The pilot program allows students to plan museum exhibition spaces in response to the museum’s summer exhibition, You Are Breathing In It! Alternative Art Practices.

Kim’s individual project involved documentary photos from the Mobile Mural Lab youth workshop held during the exhibit’s opening reception.

“The program represents an important step for RAM to better engage our region’s university students in a meaningful way,” said Drew Oberjuerge, the museum’s executive director. “We hope that this experience is an important stepping stone in their careers as artists, curators, and art critics.”

Artwork from the pilot program will be on view in RAM’s alcove hallway, atrium exhibition wall, glass cases, and upstairs mezzanine hallway through September 26th. The students will speak about their work and their process during a panel discussion and closing reception for the You Are Breathing In It! exhibition on September 21st from 6 to 9 p.m. For reservations, contact or e-mail Kathryn Poindexter at 951-684-7111 or e-mail her at ramexhibitions@riversideartmuseum.org.

Kim, who majored in English and visual arts at CBU, will begin the museum studies program at Claremont Graduate University this fall.
