The Stamp Gallery is proud to present the Adele H. Stamp Student Union Contemporary Art Collection – Acquisitions 2013
SEPTEMBER 9 – OCTOBER 12, 2013
OPENING RECEPTION SEPTEMBER 12, 2013 5-8PM
Last year, six students participated in the Contemporary Art Purchase Program. The objective of this program is to put the process of collecting art for our public collection into the hands of our students. The student committee participate in a year long process, including: taking a class on art markets and public art collection; researching galleries and artists; visiting galleries and artist studios; managing a purchase budget and finally presenting their selections to an Advisory Board made up of arts professionals.
The committee made some impressive choices this year and we hope you will join us in celebrating their achievement! After the exhibition closes, the artwork will be displayed throughout the hallways of the Stamp Student Union.
Featured in this acquisition include works by artists: Alice Attie, Selin Balci, Jeremy Dean, Hedieh Javanshir Ilchi, Nate Larson & Marni Shindelman, Jiha Moon and Hunter Reynolds.
2012-2013 Student Committee Members include: Sarah Buchanan, Jennifer Clifford, Nathalia Gabriel, Hannah Kelly, Alex McCormick, and Zulekha Sayyed.
