Miami University Art Museum Spring Exhibition opens Jan. 15: Biennial Department of Art Faculty and Alumni Exhibition


The Miami University Art Museum’s spring exhibition “ Biennial Department of Art Faculty and Alumni Exhibition” opens Jan. 15 and runs through May 11.

Special opening events include a reception for students 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16, and an open house 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23.

University art faculty members are not only educators, but also working artists. Because faculty members typically include their work in galleries and solo or group shows outside of Oxford, this exhibition offers viewers an opportunity to view the works of those who are instructing future artists.

“Our faculty continually explores new concepts and expands the limits of media through innovative approaches. For alumni, the result of their time here at Miami illustrates the progressive educational experience that enables them to serve as the next generation in the evolution of the arts,” said Jason Shaiman, curator of exhibitions.

The exhibition features 68 works by 51 artists — art faculty, emeriti and alumni. Works include paintings, drawings, ceramics, prints, photographs, art historical publications, sculpture, jewelry, mixed media, digital video and woodworking.
