Biennial 2020 MTSU Art and Design Faculty Exhibition
The MTSU Department of Art and Design announces an exhibition of selected works by faculty members entitled Biennial 2020: A Faculty Exhibition of Art and Design. Scheduled in the Todd Art Gallery, Todd Hall, Room 224A, the exhibit opens the department's upcoming fall exhibit calendar and will be in place August 24–October 17, 2020.
Representing the department's course areas of Art Education, Foundations, Graphic Design, Illustration, and Studio Art, which includes Ceramics, Painting, Print Media, and Sculpture, the Biennial showcases an outstanding fusion of art from Art and Design's many components. A partial list of participants includes Erin Anfinson, Michael Baggarly, Stefanie Cobb, Douglas Dabbs, Kimberly Dummons, Kelsey Duncan, Nicole Foran, Jarrod Houghton, Noël Lorson, Mark Mcleod, Paige Medlock, Jean Nagy, Melissa Newman, Kathleen O'Connell, Sisavanh Phouthavong, Tony Rodriguez, Nicholas Satinover, Sheri Selph, Stephanie Simkin, and Tanya Tewell.
The exhibit is multi-purposed in its presentation. At its most basic level, it introduces the artwork of newer faculty to Art and Design students. More broadly, it serves as an update to the ever-evolving artistry of the department's more senior professors so that art students, the campus community, and the public alike have the opportunity to witness an exceptional and expressive statement of contemporary visual art at MTSU.
As a focused student endeavor, this exhibit intends to engage its viewers, whether they be university students or life-long learners in what Dr. Paige Medlock, Art Education, sees as visual art's cultural significance, …[It] creates a space where viewers can pause, reflect, and shift the way they see themselves, their context, the artwork, the artist's context, and potentially allow a new perspective to shed light on thinking and being in the world.
Biennial 2020: A Faculty Exhibition of Art and Design is free and open to the public with applicable campus Covid-19 policies in place. Gallery hours: Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
