EXHIBITION TITLE: New York Times 2013
DURATION: Aug. 26 – Sept. 19
RECEPTION: Sept. 5, 4-6 p.m.
The Roland Dille Center for the Arts gallery presents an exhibition comprised of work created by 29 students and two faculty members who traveled to New York City this past summer with the Department of Art & Design. Photographers, printmakers, drawers and painters lived in Manhattan for a month, the studying art and culture of New York City. They visited museums, galleries, and ventured to artist studios. The students also attended a course, taught by Lauren Marinaro at New York University concerning the contemporary art world. Photography students went on photographic excursions around the city and in various boroughs and held in-progress critiques for images and concepts. Printmaking, drawing, and painting students had studio space at the New York Academy of Art where they drew from live models, participated in critiques and created works in their on-site studio space.
The work presented in the exhibition has been created post-New York and serves as a physical manifestation of their experiences whether it’s personal reflections of the trip, a display of artistic development, or a new understanding realized through a different culture.
The exhibition runs from Aug. 26 to Sept. 19 with an opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 5 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Great Hall just outside the gallery in the Roland Dille Center for the Arts on the MSUM campus.
