Effection - Boundaries: A Show to Benefit Upward Bound
February 21st, 2004
La Terra Gallery
511 Harrison Street
The Upward Bound project was created by the 1964 Economic Opportunity Act. Upward Bound is a highly successful, college based program of rigorous academic instruction, individual tutoring and guidance counseling for low income disadvantaged high school students, most of whom are the first generation of their families to consider postsecondary education.
About Effection: Raising awareness and support for charity are the main goals here at Effection but we also believe that Art and design can change the way people think about society. Here at 'Effection' we bring art, design and Architecture together because they all draw upon the same influences when being created. The creative process and positive social messages engrained in Art and Design are often overlooked or misunderstood. 'Effection' events offer the participating artists and designers another voice in mainstream society. It is our hope that positive social ideas and thinking may infect the minds of people who attend our events and possibly change society for the better. Effection is not just a collaborative of people...it is an idea that we can all support something larger than ourselves: One idea at a time, one person at a time, one city at a time and maybe a whole society."
