The artist Sonia Delaunay (1885-1979) sought ways to bring modern art out of the confines of traditional easel painting. She carried this out by exploring color theory through textile and fashion design that continues to influence today’s fashion designers. This exhibition includs more than 20 examples of her work, along with a sample dress recreated by Savannah Bower, Theatre Department Costume Designer.
Frank O’Hara (1926-1966) was an art critic, curator at the Museum of Modern Art, and leader of the New York School of poets. O’Hara died after being struck by a vehicle in 1966. In his honor, the Museum of Modern Art published In Memory of My Feelings in 1967, featuring works by artists of the New York School reflecting a selection of his poems. This exhibition is co-curated by Dr. Chidsey Dickson, Professor of English.
Earth is experiencing the worst species die-offs since the loss of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Scientists estimate we’re now losing species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the natural rate, with literally dozens going extinct every day. This exhibition is curated by museum studies student Matthew Geiger (Biology ’18) in fulfillment of program requirements.
