Placemaking: Forging Stronger Ties through Collaboration
May 17 – July 15, 2023
Curated by Page Burch, Master Craftsman Program Director and Lecturer of Sculpture
This exhibition focuses on the creative endeavors of Master Craftsman students in KSU’s School of Art and Design. Their engagement with the community produces sculptural artworks of all shapes and sizes. Through partnerships with various municipalities, artists, and community leaders, students have had the opportunity to explore professional development and creative placemaking in a variety of media. This exhibition will focus on recently installed projects and unrealized opportunities that students have been a part of.
Professor Burch will present a lecture about the exhibition in the Fine Arts Gallery on June 28, 2023 at 12:30 pm as part of our Last Wednesday Lunch monthly program.
