Outside the Box

Exhibition Student Response Exhibition - Outside the Box - open Jan 29-May 18

In this fifth juried Student Response Exhibition (SRE), Miami University students are called upon to creatively respond to a select theme - the Box. The previous SRE exhibitions largely piqued the interest of students in the Department of Art. By selecting a theme based on a universal concept, the door is widened for a diverse body of work produced by a diverse body of students.

Selecting “Outside the Box” as the main theme enables students to think beyond limitations of a physical form. Typically represented in two or three dimensions, a box can also elicit a response in a metaphorical manner and be represented in theoretical and abstract explanations. Afterall, Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines the idiom to think outside the box as “to explore ideas that are creative and unusual and that are not limited or controlled by rules or tradition.”

As a juried exhibition, all works were selected through a formal process by a committee. Three works in the exhibition will be chosen for cash awards by votes cast by visitors viewing the exhibition via the provided kiosk in the gallery. Cash awards are sponsored by the Art Museum Membership Association. Winners will be announced at a special reception on April 9 during a public awards ceremony.
