Road Trips began as a fascinating free-form year-long series of group art exhibits that will soon become a website — Stay Tuned!
The poster and the ROAD TRIPS logo was designed by Rebecca and Nathan Malamud during the exhibit. The site will be built remotely online over the Internet while Nate attends college at the University of Oregon (time permitting, of course! 😃) and will feature the work of all of the exhibiting artists in the show. The logo incorporates the compass rose previously designed for our Port Orford Historical Photos project and the poster was designed to resemble a road atlas befitting the theme of the exhibition.
Here is one of six ROAD TRIPS Episodic Posters designed for the exhibit featuring the photography of Lance Nix, whose photographic oeuvre was in a large part the namesake of the show.
The show was not exclusive to photography despite the ROAD TRIPS metaphor and featured experimental art in several mediums. For example, below is a music visualization built with Stephen Malinowski’s Music Animation Machine created during the exhibit. It features an original composition, “Hearts Go Alone”, by Michael Brumit.
The show also serendipitously included a major historic remodel of the 351-Building where Point.B Studio is located. You can read more about that here: https://sixes.net/darrenevans.art/restoration.htm
