GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is a place to
develop skills, ask questions, experiment freely, and investigate the human
spirit. Here we create dialogue between the established and the experimental,
the contemporary and the traditional. Through exceptional arts education and
engaging community programming, we inspire people to expand the boundaries of
art making, personal growth, and appreciation for material culture.
GoggleWorks is pleased to announce an open call to
all professional artists, age 18 and up, who design and produce their own work,
to show in our 11th Annual Juried Exhibition. Open to all media, this
exhibition aims to curate a selection of exemplary contemporary work from
artists around the country. A catalog will be published by GoggleWorks Center
for the Arts containing artists' bios and images of work(s), together with the
juror's bio and statement.
Lisa Tremper Hanover was named Director & CEO of the James A. Michener Art
Museum in March 2012 after a successful tenure as Director of the Philip and
Muriel Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College. While at the Berman, she
coordinated and supervised the establishment of the first museum program on the
Ursinus campus, organized over 300 exhibitions and attendant programming,
expanded the permanent collection to over 4,000 works of art, and raised the
profile of the institution to a national level. Successful endowment and
capital campaigns resulted in a dramatic expansion with one of the only visible
storage galleries in an academic museum in the country. The Berman Museum
achieved accreditation status with the American Alliance of Museums in December
As leader of the Michener Art Museum program, Hanover has
overseen the transformation of the physical facility with new façade
landscaping, revitalization of permanent collection galleries, refreshed
curatorial efforts, a celebration of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary of
operation, and negotiated for the highly successful exhibition From
Philadelphia to Monaco: Grace Kelly – Beyond the Icon presented in 2013-2014 to over 100,000
visitors. The Michener was accredited by the American Alliance of Museums in
2001 and achieved subsequent reaccreditation in 2016.. A leader in the museum
field, Hanover has conducted numerous Museum Assessment Program reviews and
served on AAM Accreditation teams.
In addition to presenting at numerous regional and national
conferences, Hanover has served as President of the Association of Academic
Museums & Galleries, Pennsylvania Federation of Museums & Historical
Organizations, and presented over 250 public lectures to professional
organizations. Hanover has juried over 85 art exhibitions and public art
commissions and served on the Board of Directors of the Wayne Art Center, The
