  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Davis ('71, MFA Fine Arts '73) creates mixed media sculpture that is deeply informed by African traditions of craft, color, and pattern. His woven paintings, collages and prints often incorporate paint, leather, bamboo, copper, rawhide, and other materials. As a teacher and administrator, he served as the Dean of the Memphis College of Art (1993-2002) and Dean of the San Antonio Art Institute (1991-92). His work has been shown at Georgia Southern University, Perry Nicole Fine Art, Memphis College of Art, Louisiana Tech University, California State University, and he has created public art commissions at the Philadelphia International Airport, Nashville International Airport, Memphis Public Library, Hartsfield International Airport, Revere Beach Subway in Boston and the Harbor Freeway in Los Angeles.

"My art choices and world view are influenced by travel. Through travel, I seek influences, cultural centers, energies, new terrain and the power of both the spoken and unspoken. The magic of the American Southwest, Brazil, Haiti and West Africa penetrates much of my work. Southern California, home for thirty years, has also had an indelible impact and the colors and rhythms of the Pacific Rim continue to infiltrate."
