ARTificial Intelligence: A Student Response Exhibition (Douglass Gallery)
In this tenth juried Student Response Exhibition (SRE), Miami University students are called upon to creatively respond to Artificial Intelligence in connection with Miami University's 2024-2025 FOCUS theme. Artificial Intelligence offers many possibilities, though it has also become a controversial topic. Three works in the exhibition will be awarded with cash prizes sponsored by the Art Museum’s Membership Committee. Votes will be cast by visitors to the exhibition. Winners will be announced at a special reception in November 2024 during a public awards ceremony.
Collections Highlights: Recent Acquisitions (McKie Gallery)
Each year the Art Museum's permanent collection of more than 17,500 objects expands. The collection is enhanced through gifts and bequests from alumni and other donors who support the arts, and purchases from auctions, galleries and artists. Acquisitions accessioned between 2022 and 2024 include paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, metals, and woodwork from regional to internationally recognized artists, including Francisco Jose de Goya y Lucientes, Elizabeth Nourse, Frank Duveneck, Jim Dine, Rockwell Kent, Anne Noggle, Adelia Cone, Romare Bearden, Joseph Henry Sharp, and Barbara Gonzales.
Through Their Lens: Freedom Summer Photographers (Farmer Gallery)
Through Their Lens will focus on the most important photographers documenting the historic 1964 Mississippi Freedom Project, more commonly known as Freedom Summer, coinciding with its 60th anniversary year. Placing the photographers at the forefront, this exhibition will explore their backstories, how they came to be associated with Freedom Summer, and what contributions they made to our understanding of the historic summer that began on the campus of the Western College for Women in Oxford, Ohio. The Art Museum is one of more than 100 participating venues in the Cincinnati-based FotoFocus Biennial. Made possible with support from a grant from FotoFocus.
