MSU student exhibition ‘Reflections on Culture & Self’ on display in October 

embedded-news-cali-jones-art.webpMorehead State University will present a multi-location student art exhibition this month.  

"Reflections on Culture & Self" will be on display Oct. 9-27 in the Adron Doran University Center and the Camden-Carroll Library (CCL) Diversity Gallery. A reception will take place at 3 p.m. on Oct. 11 in the CCL Diversity Gallery.  

The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Eagle Diversity and Inclusion Team and the Department of Communication, Media, Art & Design. This partnership is part of the Eagle Diversity and Inclusion Team's efforts to increase displays of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging on the campus of Morehead State University.  

ADUC's display cases will feature clay pieces by art and non-art majors from Ceramics I courses under the prompts "Replication" and "Historical vs. Contemporary" provided by Visiting Assistant Professor of Ceramics Quinn Maher.

Students created this art in Professor of Art Gary Mesa-Gaido's Painting II and III courses.  

“For some time, the Eagle Diversity and Inclusion Team has been interested in promoting creativity through the arts as one of our many efforts to further conversations related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging,” said Dr. Caroline Atkins, MSU’s chief diversity officer. “This exhibition will do just that. We are grateful for the leadership of the Department of Communication, Music, Art and Design and we look forward to seeing the creativity and imagination of our MSU students.”
