After typing
more than 2,500 postcards to the President from dozens of campuses and other
locations around the country, Sheryl Oring’s I WISH TO SAY is coming to
Monmouth to engage students in discussions about politics and social change.
Oring sets up a pop-up public office on campus–complete with a manual
typewriter–and invites students to dictate postcards to the next President.

Sheryl Oring’s work examines
social issues through projects that incorporate old and new media to tell
stories, examine public opinion and foster open exchange. Oring’s work has been
shown at Bryant Park in New York City; the Berlin Wall Memorial; the Jewish
Museum Berlin; the 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, CA; the San Diego Museum of Art;
as well as in major festivals such as Encuentro in São PauloBrazil,
the Art Prospect Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Art in Odd Places in
New York City. She recently completed a large-scale public art installation at
the San Diego International Airport and currently works as an Assistant
Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Oring is
the recipient of grants from Franklin Furnace and Creative Capital. Her
forthcoming book Activating Democracy: The I Wish to Say Project is due out in Fall 2016 from Intellect Books/University of Chicago Press.
