Two current exhibitions in the art galleries feature undergraduate research. “Bring the War Home” is a class research project directed by Brandon Bauer, Assistant Professor of Art at St. Norbert College. He describes this project as follows:
For this project we restaged and re-photographed an archival image of a Vietnam War protest that took place on the St. Norbert College campus in 1969. The project was inspired by class discussions about conceptual strategies contemporary artists use, including narrative approaches, staged documentation, and ideas of the cinematic in contemporary photography.
More about the “Bring the War Home” project can be read in the latest edition of St. Norbert College Magazine.
The Permanent Collection Gallery features a curatorial research project by Rebecca Swanson. She completed this project as part of her Research Fellowship in the Art Galleries. Rebecca chose two works from the St. Norbert Art Collection to research and analyze, an untitled work by Daniel Dickhut, founder of the St. Norbert College Art program and a painting by Juan Soriano, gifted to the collection by BMO Financial Group and Kohler Foundation, Inc.
Stop by the galleries the week of March 28-April 1 to check out these exhibits (the galleries are closed for Spring and Easter breaks this week). Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. during the academic year.
