Professors’ lives outside of the classroom often get overlooked and students don’t normally get the opportunity to experience the personal work of their professors, but this is exactly what IUSB’s annual Faculty Art Exhibition is all about.
The exhibition will take place Sept. 19 and continue through Sept. 29 in the Art Gallery, located in the main hallway of the Education and Arts Building. It will feature artwork from both full-time and part-time faculty and staff members who will be showcasing their handwork.
Susan Moore has been with the University since 2004. Along with being the Chair of the Fine Arts department, she is a professor of photography and will be displaying her recent prints in the gallery.
“Each year, the art faculty and the new media faculty show their work so students can see what kinds of things their faculty are interested in,” said Susan Moore. “Visitors as well as students will be welcomed to meet with the faculty to discuss their artwork. This creates a sense of community between the students and the faculty that we all show our work together and we’re able to talk about it.”
The photography, drawing and painting, sculpting and new media faculty will present their artwork in the Art Gallery.
Throughout the exhibition, the gallery will be open from 12 to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. On Thursday, Sept. 22, a gallery talk and exhibition reception will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The talk is free to the public, so anyone can come and pay homage to the professors that that serve the community.
