The Annual Art Faculty Exhibition, January 10-February 2, 2014. In the New Year we get the chance to review what’s been happening recently in the studios of the Art Faculty. Once Winter Break is over, the University seems to go from zero to warp speed in the first week of classes: to celebrate, MoFA leads off with the combined talents of artists who take us skillfully in many unexpected directions through many different media.

East Meets West, January 2-26, 2014. As Education Curator Viki Thompson Wylder explains:

[quote]”We asked elementary teachers to think about Gabrielle’s work, or to think about a merger of Eastern and Western traditions . . . eighteen schools are represented in the exhibition. Of course, some schools followed our request more closely, some more loosely, some more stereotypically, and some in ways I never imagined. All the work exhibits a delightful quality seen in children’s production.”[/quote]
