Art Installation Explores NECC Campus History

Submitted by on March 4, 2013 – 2:31 pm


Liz Nofzinger, a Boston-based video and installation artist interprets the history of Northern Essex Community College’s Haverhill campus in an exhibit titled “Resource” which runs Saturday, March 2, through Saturday, April 6. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 8, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the ArtSpace in the Harold Bentley Library on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. This event is free and open to the public.

Nofzinger, who holds a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts from Goshen College and a Master of Fine Art in Studio for Interrelated Media from the Massachusetts College of Art, has exhibited widely including exhibits in Boston, Washington, and Colorado. In 2010 she participated in the DeCordova Biennial at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA.

Her inspiration for the NECC installation began the first time Nofzinger visited the campus last summer. Her “precarious” stack of conference room chairs recognizes the gallery’s dual use as a conference room, the visionary nature and sense of humor of the college’s founding president and library namesake, Harold Bentley; and the campus landscape visible beyond the large windows of the gallery.

In addition to being a working artist, Nofzinger is managing editor of ASPECT: The Chronicle of New Media Art.

ArtSpace hours are Monday through Thursday 2 to 9 p.m., Friday, 2 to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
