PUEBLO—Colorado State University Pueblo’s School of Creativity and Practice invites the public to join for a new faculty group exhibition reception at the CSU Pueblo Fine Art Gallery on Friday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. The group exhibition features creative works of new faculty members in the Department of Media Community and the Department of Art and Creative Media.

“The show introduces several of our new faculty in the School of Creativity + Practice to the community,” said Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Media Communication, Jon Pluskota. “To me, it shows who we are, what we all do, and what SoCaP is about. I think it’s important that students, colleagues, and the community see that we as faculty here at CSU Pueblo are still active in our industries, and this is especially important for creative and media industries. Relevance is important to the students, and this show highlights each of us.”

The four new faculty members featured in the exhibition include Matt Garcia, assistant professor in the School of Creativity and Practice; Dustin Hodge, visiting professor of Media Communication; Kim Pluskota, adjunct art professor; and Jon Pluskota, department chair and associate professor of Media Communication. Each of the new faculty members joined CSU Pueblo in the fall of 2021.

“As new members of the Pueblo community and campus, it is great to see the efforts of the university to engage the community through a variety of events,” said Pluskota. “Community relations are essential in higher education, and knowing what I know now, the vision of the current administration not only aligns with this but also heavily supports it now and for the future. We are thrilled to be here and look forward to doing more at the university and in the community.”

The creative works feature photography, videography and a variety of installations. An informal gallery talk with the artists will be followed by refreshments at the CSU Pueblo Fine Art Gallery which is located on campus at Hoag Hall.

The School of Creativity and Practice is comprised of the Department of Art and Creative Media, the Department of Media Communication and the Department of Music. There are nine areas of exploration and 10 minors within the School of Creativity and Practice and there are additional emphasis areas offered within each major.

The rigorous integrated approach within the School of Creativity and Practice dissolves boundaries between disciplines and majors offered, which empowers students to shape their academic career and interests. Creative professionals serve as agents of change, offering bold and fresh perspectives as part of their expertise.
