Whitney Biennale artists selected

John Mason ('57) and Joel Otterson

The Whitney Museum just announced the artists for its Biennale. Two Otis artists who blur the difference between art and craft were selected. Alumnus John Mason ('57), a leader of the Ceramics Revolution started by Peter Voulkos at Otis in the 1950s, and Fine arts faculty member Joel Otterson, whose work combines aspects of domestic handicraft with traditional sculptural material, will be included in this exhibition, which runs from March 7-May 25 at the Whitney's Madison Ave. location. This 77th biennale presents work by 103 artists. See Joel Otterson's work at Maloney FIne Art, Culver City, through Dec. 21.
