Jim Ballard

“Please Touch” is an interactive and collaborative exhibit that explores the themes of air, earth, the human form and sound through a variety of media. Jim Ballard and his colleagues, sculptors Richard Hestekind and David Varnau, along with various teams of people create an experiential art installation that focuses on touch, sound,
and motion. 

Collaborative aspects of the exhibit took place during fall 2014 as part of Jim Ballard’s artist-in-residence program with Edmonds CC students and instructors, blind or visually impaired local community members, and others who shared their ideas, developed methods of executing the art, and created tactile works. This exhibit invites children and adults who want to discover more about the world to “Please Touch.”

A reception with the artists is 3:30-6:30 p.m., Fri., Jan. 23 in the college art gallery.

The exhibit is sponsored by the college's library, the Visual Arts department, and the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership.
