Herron Alumna Alice Guerin on Finding Her Artistic Niche

Alice Guerin. Rachel Enneking

Alice Guerin, after receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2013, quickly found a sector where she could continue her artistic practice: tattooing. Due to her incredible attention to detail and ability to do delicate, precise designs, Guerin’s business gained traction very quickly.

Today, Guerin only takes appointments, and for good reason: her parlor, Knot Eye Studio, has a incredibly high level of demand, and her appointment books currently closed until fall 2019. She has been featured in Indianapolis Monthly and The Good Trade, along with numerous other publications. Here, Guerin discusses her artistic process, inspirations, and more.

Mighty Dreams: Designing and Fostering Belonging in ‘America’

Rising global inequality, political instability, violence, food insecurity, climate change: these and other factors have resulted in a worldwide refugee crisis unprecedented in scale. From Syria to South Sudan, Myanmar to Guatemala, tens of millions of people around the world have left their homes in search of safety and survival. In the United States, fires, flooding, and lack of affordable housing and job opportunities are among the environmental crises and economic injustices influencing internal migration and sweeping demographic change within cities, states, and regions. With migration often painfully disrupting personal and collective understandings of culture and place, displaced, recently arrived, and changing communities are seeking new meaning and hope around what it means to live and belong in America and the world.

Despite the urgent challenges we face, we are also living in a time of renewed civic, activist, and human spirit. Indigenous peoples continue to fight for sovereignty, self-determination, and thriving ecological futures. Cross border and international immigrant rights coalitions are building sanctuaries and diverse coalitions to combat nativist ideology and violent state policy. Instead of giving up or retreating with despair, youthful and more seasoned artists, designers, scholars, and organizers are together creating spaces to heal, find a sense of belonging, and construct new ways of being, living, and working in community. This work requires compassion, courage, strength, experimentation, and an expansive imagination of the world as it could and should be.

This year Imagining America (IA) celebrates twenty years of supporting publicly engaged artists, designers, scholars, and organizers who imagine, study, and enact a more just and liberatory America and world. Inspired by the cultural landscape of New Mexico and the upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential elections, IA’s 20th Anniversary National Gathering will consider how we define, design, and foster belonging in our home communities and as a nation state. With belonging, indigeneity, and migration serving as framing concepts, IA invites proposals that advance public scholarship, dialogue, collaboration, research, programs, and advocacy on realizing an America that, as in Langston Hughes’ mighty dream, is the land it must be – a place of opportunity and equality for all. The gathering will explore such questions as:

●    How do our diverse relationships to land, displacement, and migration inform and interact with the ways we envision place and belonging – culturally, socially, politically, economically, spiritually, ecologically, and agriculturally?
●    How may Indigenous, traditional, cross-border, and community-based ways of knowing be used to shift how belonging is defined and designed, and who participates in this process?
●    In what ways can public memory, history, art, and design be used to address living legacies of oppression and to foster belonging within our institutions and communities?
●    Given that our own histories and narratives of land, belonging, and migration are often different from one another, how do we build cross-movement solidarities towards the long haul project of social change for a more just, equitable and liberatory future?

IA also welcomes proposals that provide participants with new skills or tools, create opportunities for collaboration, and/or more generally strengthen publicly engaged knowledge and practices that integrate the methodologies of arts, design, and the humanities.

For general questions on the proposal process before submitting your proposal, please join us on May 14, 2019 from 10-11 AM PT for an informational webinar.

Instructions on how to submit your proposal are available on IA’s website atwww.imaginingamerica.org >> National Gathering >> Submit a Proposal.
The submission deadline is Friday, June 7, 2019 at 11:59 PM PT.

Digital Scholarship Team Gives Blind Students Unique Senior Portraits

Dressed in their emerald green graduation gowns and mortarboards, the 19 graduating seniors from the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired lined up for their class pictures.

Two queues occupied the cafeteria space inside the historic school: one for the traditional still-portrait photographer and another for a team from the IUPUI University Library Center for Digital Scholarship manning two 3D-scanning stations. Most of the students sat down for both.

The scanning took only about a minute for each student. The digital composites will be sent to the school’s records as well as to the students, who can then 3D-print the scan.

“We hope this becomes a new tradition for us,” said school superintendent Jim Durst. “A picture is worth a thousand words, and an object is worth a thousand pictures. Our kids can have access to information through 3D printing, but this really personalizes it at a level we hadn’t thought of or anticipated.”

The technicians used Creaform portable 3D scanners, which take about 1,000 digital photographs per second. The software stitches the images together to create a surface in staggering detail. The 3D scans can sharpen the details of a face — or any object — to a tenth of a millimeter.

The Center for Digital Scholarship has been busy for years with collaborations with the Benjamin Harrison Presidential SiteIndianapolis Motor Speedway MuseumIndianapolis Firefighters Museum, and several other institutions and programs. Typically, the team scans inanimate objects for virtual online museum experiences that users can access anywhere on the planet. At the 2018 Regatta, the team scanned 200 students’ faces, including one who 3D-printed a life-size version of his face to make into a Halloween mask. At the Jan. 24 50th Anniversary Birthday Bash, 400 students were scanned.

Steve Mannheimer, professor of media arts and science, had worked with the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired for years as part of assistive, accessible and inclusive technology research with the Department of Human-Centered Computing. He met with Durst to plan the April 16 scanning session.

Decades of two-dimensional class photos line the school’s halls, but many of the students can’t see them. The goal of the class of 2019’s 3D scans is for that to change.

“One research question is, ‘Will the students recognize themselves?'” Mannheimer said. “Thanks to digital technology, we can provide tactual, acoustic, gestural opportunities to say, ‘How will this help somebody who may be differently abled to better interact with the world?'”

Durst was excited about what the 3D scanning will lead his students to.

“In the future, when they come back years from now with their children and grandchildren,” he said, “they can say, ‘Here’s my picture. This is what I look like,’ without depending on somebody else to find their picture.”

Visually impaired students had the option of keeping their eyes closed, as the handheld scanners emit bright lights while scanning. No sound is emitted during the process as the technician holds the scanner about an arm’s length from the subject.

“It’s like a projector that slides across a surface’s mountains and valleys,” said Derek Miller, 3D project coordinator. “We can also capture color and texture of materials.”

Inspired by a few other assistive technology initiatives, Miller hopes to offer scanning services to the school again — not only to the graduating class, but for every class. From kindergarten to senior year, blind students will be able to realize their physical growth from their 3D-scanned portraits.

“It’s going to allow them to feel themselves tactilely,” Miller said. “Someday, hopefully, we’ll be able to scan a blind student at the age of 5 and then scan them every year. In theory, we could build a timeline of them growing that they can actually feel.”

Senior Cassondra Ernstes was one of the first students to get scanned. She was thrilled to be among the first class to have such unique senior pictures.

“That was pretty interesting. I didn’t feel anything,” Ernstes said. “I’ll be 3D-printing this. We’ve never had anything like this before. It’s pretty different, but pretty cool.”

’50 Trees For 50 Years’

IUPUI celebrated Arbor Day in tree-mendous fashion Friday, April 26.

At 9 a.m., IUPUI leaders, students and staff were joined by community leaders to celebrate Earth Month as well as IUPUI’s legacy at Lockefield Green, located at North Street and University Boulevard.

In collaboration with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, 50 trees will be planted along University Boulevard. Eight additional, larger trees will reside on the University Tower west lawn near the intersection of Michigan Street and University Boulevard.

Donated by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, 50 trees will be installed by hand by IUPUI students and staff and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful volunteers. The young trees will line the street between North Street and Indiana Avenue. The 50 saplings will be a mix of swamp white oak, tulip, poplar, black gum and sycamore trees, and they will be watered and maintained by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for three years.

The trees will beautify campus, blossoming in the spring and changing colors in the fall, and provide shade along sidewalks. They will bring other benefits, too.

According to Office of Sustainability director Jessica Davis, the trees will add to the campus goal of 28 percent canopy coverage and will lessen flooding by filtering water from campus streets. The trees will also attract pollinators, which fulfills IUPUI’s status as a Tree Campus USA and Bee Campus USA institution.

The University Tower trees will include large shade trees in the form of redbud and beech trees for students to congregate around and relax under for decades to come.

Those attending the tree-planting ceremony will include Chancellor Nasser H. Paydar; Indianapolis deputy mayor of neighborhoods David Hampton; and Joe Jarzen, vice president of program strategy for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.

Reading at the Table with Dr. Wendy Vogt

Dr. Wendy Vogt

Reading at the table will be presented by Wendy Vogt. Wendy Vogt, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of anthropology at IUPUI. In 2012, she received her doctorate from the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Her research interests include politically engaged anthropology., migration, transit journeys, violence, political economy, human rights and transnational feminism. She teaches courses on Cultural Anthropology, Race & Ethnicity, Gender & Sexuality, Migration, Ethnographic Methods, Anthropological Theory, Applied Anthropology and International Studies.

Lives in Transit chronicles the dangerous journeys of Central American migrants in transit through Mexico. Drawing on fieldwork in humanitarian aid shelters and other key sites, the book examines the multiple forms of violence that migrants experience as their bodies, labor, and lives become implicated in global and local economies that profit from their mobility as racialized and gendered others. At the same time, it reveals new forms of intimacy, solidarity and activism that have emerged along transit routes over the past decade. Through the stories of migrants, shelter workers and local residents, Vogt encourages us to reimagine transit as both a site of violence and precarity as well as social struggle and resistance.

Indiana Nonprofits Lack Information Technology Tools and Training, New Research Finds

Many Indiana nonprofits lack basic information technology tools that would help them better communicate and serve their constituents, operate more effectively and efficiently, and offer more assistance to the communities they serve.

These and other findings are the subject of a new report on Indiana Nonprofits: Information Technology Resources and Challenges released today by the Indiana University Paul H. O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the IU Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.

The report is based on a wide array of Indiana-based nonprofits, from traditional public charities and religious congregations to other tax-exempt entities such as membership associations and advocacy groups.

“Most people probably cannot imagine getting along without access to the internet or a full range of IT tools,” said Kirsten Grønbjerg, Distinguished Professor at the O’Neill School and Efroymson Chair in Philanthropy at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI, who directs the Indiana Nonprofits Project. “However, that is the situation many Indiana nonprofits find themselves in, as our report shows.”

More than one-third of the 1,036 Indiana nonprofits surveyed do not have an organizational website, although 60 percent use social media frequently or almost all the time, the report finds. More than one-third rarely or never use electronic financial records or IT security, and two-fifths rarely or never use electronic client or member records.

The use of these internally or externally focused IT tools varies by a number of nonprofit characteristics. Overall, the age of the organization, how formalized it is — for example, the number of organizational components, such as written policies, it has in place — and the primary mission appear to be particularly important.

The report also explores the types of challenges Indiana nonprofits face in using information technology. Creating and maintaining an engaging and current website was the most widespread challenge, according to the report.

Indiana nonprofits also indicated they confront other challenges in applying IT — such as using donor databases — and in capacity, such as identifying IT tools and resources or training staff and volunteers.

IT challenges also differ according to various characteristics of the nonprofit organization, but board vacancies appear to be particularly important, after controlling for all other factors. For example, nonprofits with board vacancies encounter challenges in ensuring all needed IT activities are carried out. Also, those with major IT challenges find it difficult to recruit and keep board members.

“We hope Indiana policymakers and philanthropic funders will read the report and consider ways in which they can support efforts to strengthen the capacity of Indiana nonprofits to obtain and use information technology,” Grønbjerg said.

On the Bloomington campus, the SERVE IT Clinic is already using the report findings to prioritize its efforts of providing state-of-the-art technology services to local nonprofit organizations.

“The report offers the clinic’s students a way to understand the full scope of technological needs that these important community institutions face,” said Una Thacker, assistant director of the clinic. “Being able to tie their work to real community needs helps our students recognize the importance of the services they provide.”

About the report

This is the third report based on a major 2017 survey of Indiana nonprofits from the Indiana Nonprofits Project. It is the first report based on the survey to provide an in-depth analysis of a particular aspect of nonprofit management.

Future reports in this series will focus on program evaluation, advocacy and political activities, human resource management, and other aspects of nonprofit organization leadership.

These analyses are a joint effort of the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University Bloomington and the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI. The co-authors of the briefing include project director Kirsten Grønbjerg and research assistant and Indiana University undergraduate student Payton Goodman.
