16th and 17th Century Old Master Works on Paper

Scholz Family Works on Paper Gallery
April 2–June 23, 2013

This exhibition will be the culmination of student coursework completed during the 2013 spring semester and feature selections from the Museum’s collection of Old Master prints and drawings.  Which works will be featured?  Which artists will be represented?  What ideas will be explored?  Providing answers to those questions will be the task of students in Associate Professor of Art History Robert Randolf Coleman’s seminar.  Exploring the intersection of art historical research and curatorial practice, students in the class will mine the Snite’s collection of works on paper, design an exhibition showcasing their ideas, and publish in an exhibition catalog their research on the works on display.

Opening Reception from 2:00–4:00 p.m. , with awards announced at 3:00 p.m.  

This annual exhibition of culminating works by twelve seniors and six third-year graduate students in the Department of Art, Art History and Design demonstrates a broad awareness of the themes and processes of contemporary art, and is often provocative.

The artworks range form industrial and graphic design projects and complex multi-media installations to more traditional art forms such as paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, ceramics, and sculpture.

On Sunday, April 7 the Department of Art, Art History and Design awards will be announced in the Museum’s Annenberg Auditorium during the opening reception for the exhibition.
