VERMILLION, S.D. – “Reframing the Collection: Emerging Curators at USD,” featuring exhibitions curated by University of South Dakota students, will be on display in the John A. Day Gallery in the Warren M. Lee Center for the Fine Arts from Nov. 8-19. A closing reception, open to the public, will be held on Nov. 19 from 5-7 p.m.
Four exhibitions curated by undergraduate students and one exhibition curated by graduate students will be on display. Each exhibition was curated by a group of students as part of their work for an advanced, hands-on art history course, “Art Museums: History and Practice.” The topics of the exhibitions include psychoanalysis and the figure, magazines and American culture, Chinese ceramics, the relationship between art and music and an examination of the value of damaged art. Each exhibition features student research and works of art from the collections of the University Art Galleries.
The University Art Galleries offer free admission and is open to the public weekdays from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
