Juror lecture Friday, March 2, 5pm, followed by First Friday reception
The 43rd annual Juried Student Exhibition will showcase an eclectic array of two- and three-dimensional artwork by CMU undergraduates. Media include printmaking, drawing, painting, sculpture, fibers, ceramics, and more. Under the guidance of Alison Harris, Assistant Professor of Art, and Avery Glassman, Art Center Curator, CMU students enrolled in the Art Department’s Sophomore Seminar course coordinate the exhibition each spring. Sophomore Seminar prepares students for future career endeavors in the arts. As part of the curriculum, students learn how to coordinate a professional art exhibition; they study promotion, fundraising, print design, and budget, and are responsible for artwork placement and installation.
Juror Mary Robinson came to the attention of CMU Art professors after her solo exhibition proposal was accepted by the WCCA and slated for March 2018. It will be the first time the juror exhibits at The Art Center concurrently with the student show.
