Urban Arts Space Tours and Exhibitions Assistant and City Center Gallery co-director, Andy Meyer, was recently featured in the College of Arts and Sciences' ASC Spotlights.
Andy Meyer, a fourth-year student from Westerville, Ohio, is majoring in arts management with a minor in printmaking. Meyer is a student assistant at The Arts Initiative in the College of Arts and Sciences. Part of the initiative includes an on-campus gallery, Hopkins Hall Gallery, and a downtown 10,000 square foot exhibition and alternative performance space, Urban Arts Space. It also serves as a professional launching pad for Ohio State students, like Andy Meyer.
I am a City Center Gallery co-director. The City Center Gallery recognizes and assists emerging Ohio artists through the leadership of student assistants and staff advisers. As a co-director, I am in charge of the call for entries and organizing those entries. Once I do that, I assemble a committee of student assistants and staff to vote on the entries. We select which exhibition proposals will be featured in the gallery. This year we had 55 entries and the voting process took about four hours. We chose five proposals to be featured, after getting approval from our supervisor. Each winning proposal is awarded a month-long exhibition.
