Artist-in-Residence Migiwa Orimo
We were so fortunate to have Migiwa Orimo work with us these past two weeks, thanks to a grant from the Ohio Arts Council. Photographs from a few different classes here give a glimpse into her work with the children. We were happy to welcome so many families to school last week to visit the installation created during the residency.  Migiwa is an artist whose primary work takes the form of installation. Orimo was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. After receiving her degree in literature and studying graphic design, she immigrated to the US in the early eighties. Often her installations consist of disparate elements–painting, drawing, sculpture, video and sound. She exhibits her work nationally; her work has been shown extensively in Ohio and around the USA — the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington DC, the San Bernadino Museum, CA, the Richman Gallery, Baltimore, MD, and in Ohio, the Springfield Art Museum, Dayton Art Institute, OSU’s Urban Arts Space, Oberlin College’s Baron Gallery, and Spaces, Cleveland. A two-time recipient of the Individual Artists Fellowship, in 2008 the Ohio Arts Council awarded Orimo an Individual Creativity Excellence Award for her interdisciplinary art projects. Orimo lives and works in Yellow Springs, Ohio.
