Ingram Ober and Marisol Rendón Ober are familiar names from the New Contemporary exhibitions in Ober in 2021 and Rendón 2009. We have been following their work ever since and it is so impressive to see the progress they have made apart and together. In this presentation by Charles Miller from The City of San Diego Commission of Arts and Culture we get an overview of their work and an opportunity to give in put on their new commissioned work for Beyer Park in San Ysidro.
The participants in this zoom call mentioned topic and facts to consider like bad air quality, a once present dairy farm, a hard won skate board park, the need to help the protected species of the burrowing owl and to respect the original occupants Kumeyaay tribe. Ober and Rendón spend time in San Ysidro and have two sons who go to school in the neighboring Chula Vista. But they are looking to become as involved as possible in the community. To that end there is a Survey open until Sunday Feb 27 to get local information about all aspects of the community. They would also love to attend local events and welcome invitations. Ingram Ober teaches at Palomar College and Marisol Rendon Ober at Southwestern College.
What you see below is a selection of works by each of the artist on their own, and some of their community works alone and together done in the last years.
