Ogden Museum Announces the Second Time, Second Line Recycling Project presented by Cox Communications

Ogden Museum of Southern Art is pleased to present the Second Time, Second Line Recycling Project, part of their Artists and Sense of Place Residency Program. The project features mixed media artist Jacqueline Ehle-Inglefield working with Young Audience Charter School students to introduce new art making techniques, explore their region and raise awareness about why recycling is important to the environment. The residency will conclude with an exhibition of the student work on display from February 19 to April 10, 2022 in Ogden Museum’s Education Gallery.

The Second Time, Second Line project will involve approximately 200 Young Audience Charter School students from the Kate Middleton and Lawrence D. Crocker campuses. This project will take place in November, National Recycling Month. Cox Communications is excited to be a part of this campaign which kicks off during National Recycling Week. The project aligns well with Cox Conserves, the company’s national sustainability program which aims to send zero waste to landfill by 2024, and to be carbon and water neutral by 2034.

This collaborative effort is a part of Ogden Museum’s initiative to present high-quality educational programming that explores the visual arts and culture of the American South. Since its inception in 2001, the Artists and Sense of Place Residency has brought a unique experience to over 12,000 students from over 45 Orleans and Jefferson Parish public schools and employed over 30 visual artists. Encouraging art appreciation, self-discovery and learning in the visual arts, the program pairs students in second through fifth grades with a local artist to create a collaborative art project, exploring their environment and relationship to the region. At the end of the three-week residency, the students visit the Ogden Museum Education Gallery where their works of art are displayed. One piece will remain in the Museum’s Education Collection and the others are installed at the school.

About Jacqueline Ehle-Inglefield

Mixed media artist Jacqueline Ehle-Inglefield received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking in 1992 from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2014, Ms. Inglefield returned to her native New Orleans to advance her work in sculpting from non-traditional materials and found objects and, in 2015, was a featured artist in the Louisiana Contemporaries exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Employing repurposed plastic as the primary medium, Inglefield calls attention to the effect of man-made waste on the ecology of New Orleans waterways. Her works are held in several private collections.

About Young Audiences Charter School

At Young Audiences Charter Schools, the arts-integration curriculum reflects recent research from the arts education field that provides significant evidence of the value of the arts in the learning process. Arts Integration combines the arts with the learning of core academic subjects. It supports educational achievement and improved student behavior by giving children both a “springboard” and a “safety net” for learning. This framework raises academic expectations for all creative learners, providing them with the skills, tools, and resources they need for educational success. The arts allow students to be more engaged in education, focusing on each child’s abilities and interests to provide support in academic achievement. The arts also provide increased opportunities for parental involvement in school, a key component to education.
