The Visual Arts Gallery at Emory University announces Cross-Reference, an exhibition of faculty and selected alumni on view from Friday, January 31 – Saturday, April 5, 2013. Guest curated by Rebecca Dimling Cochran, the exhibition highlights the important contributions the Visual Arts Department has made to Emory University.
As the center for the study and practice of contemporary art on Emory campus, the Visual Arts Department & Gallery has sought to strengthen the role of creativity and artistic exploration as a vital element of liberal arts education. Since its original inception as the Studio Arts Program in the late 1960s, and later as an official department and gallery in the 2000s, contemporary visual art on Emory’s campus has served as a vehicle for innovative inquiry and discussion around all manner of subjects. Indeed, the recognition of ingenuity, imagination, and visual literacy as essential and complimentary to academic research and scholarship have been the Department's highest priorities.
Since 2006, the Visual Arts Gallery has organized over thirty-five exhibitions with related lectures and symposia that have resulted in creative collaborations with colleagues in various departments as well as opportunities for students to experience a visual interpretation of a range of subjects. Cross-Reference honors this past by including works that address subjects directly related to mathematics, history, literature, psychology, environmental studies, medicine, and behavioral science among other subjects.
The Visual Arts Department at Emory University is scheduled to officially close in the summer of 2014. We invite you to join us as we commemorate the contributions Visual Arts has made to Emory University.
Participating artists include:
Joy Drury Cox
*Ruth Dusseault's Seven-Minute Walden will be on view one week only from January 31 - February 8.
