"Lifeforms change for better or worse. A tadpole growing into a frog, a caterpillar growing into a butterfly – all exhibit this change or metamorphosis. Without change life would not progress and grow. Like living organisms, the idea of art changes too.Every Spring, the Art, Design, and Interactive Media Department teaches a course on Curation and Coordination. During this course, students learn how to curate a show, what it takes to manage an art gallery, and how to write a curator's statement. The students are then given access to the Soundheim entries data base and are tasked with curating an exhibition using the work of those artists. The students get to learn about contacting the artists they hope to work with, how to consider placement of artwork, and how to hang and light their exhibition. The exhibition created during this time is part of the Artscape Gallery Network, and we are proud to be part of that organization and the work that our students put into these shows.
In Transmutations, an Artscape Gallery Network exhibition, the artwork explores the organic evolution of forms and materials into fluid, visual translations. Works challenge the eye and mind with actual and perceived metamorphoses. "
— Anthony Rosenberger and Vernon Sydnor, student curators
