In this upcoming semester, Prof. Page Laughlin will be offering the bi-annual course ART 199 (3hr), Venice: Contemporary Art and the Venice Biennale. This seminar will provide an in-depth study of Venice and its leading exhibition of contemporary art, the Venice Biennale…
The student-curated exhibition was inspired, in part, by Reynolda House’s major fall exhibition opening Sept. 14, “Dorothea Lange’s America,” which presents Lange’s haunting photographs of 1930s and 1940s America and features some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. O’Neill challenged her students to explore the ideas that would be presented in “Dorothea Lange’s America” and make connections to photographs in the Student Union Collection of Contemporary Art.
The guided walk showcased six public art projects with the student artists each offering commentary. For more information including a video and photos from the walking tour.
