About: Students in ARTP 170: Introduction to Visual Art created collaborative site-specific earth artworks as their final creative project. Drawing inspiration from artists like Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy, the students worked together in groups to identify the sites and materials they wanted to use and develop design ideas based on the exhibition title, Elemental. Once the designs were agreed on the groups headed outdoors to create their artworks with only the natural materials that were readily available. The posters in the exhibition represent the students’ documentation of that process as well as their project statements..

Red Chair

About: 13 WAYS OF LOOKING AT A RED CHAIR | Sept. 18 - Oct. 6, 2023
13 WAYS OF LOOKING AT A RED CHAIR In 1917, Wallace Stevens wrote his important poem, 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird. Influenced by Cubism and Imagism, Stevens looks at his subject from multiple points of view. The resulting series of cantos portray not just one but many blackbirds in situations ranging from observational to abstract and metaphysical.
Inspired by Stevens’ poem, students in the Intermediate and Advanced Painting classes have created the works in this exhibition using a single red chair as their subject. Together, the paintings – like Stevens’ poem – suggest the passing of time and shifting points of view. As viewers, we are asked to enlarge our notion of what a chair is and does through the multiplicity of approaches.
The titles are influenced by the imaginative leaps and lyrical phrasing of Stevens’ poem, and inspired by the thoughts, feelings, and ideas generated in the painting process.

About: Public Blackness III | Friday, February 17, 3-4pm
Public Blackness is an exhibition that spans all three of the Art Galleries at Indiana State University. The aim is to create greater awareness of the on-going and often unresolved local and national racial issues. The show is designed to provide a safe platform where ISU students and the broader community can learn, engage, and be inspired to take positive action to help heal and transform outdated and unconscious biases.
Public Blackness demonstrates how the Black body in a racially divided society gradually disappears from our understanding of what it means to be a human. What transpires when the Black body is captured in our gaze—a gaze that has been trained to only view it as a problem everywhere it exists? What happens when the myths from our past—which were frequently used to justify its destruction—become ingrained in our imagination of its existence today? One should leave the exhibition knowing a bit more about what makes the Black body vulnerable to the violence it still endures today.
