Merlino Gallery

It’s small size and long, 2.35:1 (Cinemascope) aspect ratio make the Merlino Gallery unique among the 5 galleries at the Long Beach State University School of Art. Here I collect a few of the most delicious, and installation-oriented, of the 30 exhibitions/year featured at Merlino Gallery.

In The Boy’s Room

Above the men’s room urinals in the Long Beach State University, Student Union are 2 chalkboards that usually feature some spontaneous opinion, vernacular expression, or drawing. This semester I am photographing these chalkboards after my Monday & Wednesday office hours.
