mission of the College Board."

educationally and economically disadvantaged students in the high school

Stockton "Tom Cruise" Portraits Exhibited
The work of Fine Arts faculty member Mark Stockton will be featured in
an exhibit from Sept. 1 to Oct. 20 at Acuna-Hansen Gallery in Los Angeles.
According to the gallery's press release:
"In his meticulously
rendered small paintings and large-scale drawings, artist Mark Stockton
explores the cinematic moments when identity is transformed into celebrity.
Focusing on the three year period leading up to 1984, when Tom Cruise
had substantive parts in five films, Stockton examines the formation of
a contemporary icon. In his search for traces of humanity in these images,
Stockton unearths the man before he became an icon -- before his image
devoured his identity. Stockton's time-intensive paintings, as small as
2x3 inches, and highly detailed drawings, as large as 100x75 inches, all
depict Cruise in states of contemplation, subtly reminding the viewer
of his or her own complicity in the creation of celebrity, and the discomfort
that follows when that image is fractured."

the "Samurai" project, a photographic collaboration with Edgar
Endress shown at the UCR/California Museum of Photography in Riverside,
