Join us for a reception for the Spring 2015 Student Show with refreshments, performances and a special lecture. The exhibit is an exciting and masterful collection of class projects in various media including drawing, design, digital media, printmaking, photography, painting, ceramics, fashion and sculpture, all produced by students enrolled in Studio Art classes and the Fashion Department.
During the reception Museum Studies student Scott Paulson will present a unique personal collection, a mini-museum of Kazoos. Scott is an award-winning soundscape artist who asks the audience to participate in his live shows. He has created a plexi temple showcasing the fun, buzzy little instrument that we hum into for musical expression. Illustrated cards document the history of the instrument and reveal surprises about its uses by various musicians. The display will include antique tin and wooden kazoos, commercial advertising kazoos and cartoon character kazoos, among others. There will be a participatory performance that will encourage visitors, young and young at heart, to create their own kazoo composition and play them!
Also that evening, artist Paul Turounet will cover a variety of topics in an informal lecture format to assist students and artists on the next steps in presenting and marketing their artwork:
Designing a website,
do’s and don’ts;
preparing a proposal for an exhibition,
writing an artist statement,
using social media to promote your artwork.
All aspects of the exhibition were designed and executed by the Museum Studies class under the direction of Professor Moctezuma. Museum Studies student Scott Paulson designed the invitation.
