Montana State University School of Art and the Helen E. Copeland Gallery (HECGallery) are pleased to announce the Reception for the 2017 Undergraduate Vox Populi Exhibition. This annual juried exhibition is a diverse and unique selection of artworks by MSU undergraduate students from across the campus. This exhibition is free and open to the public. Please join us for the closing reception on Thursday, February 2nd, 6:30 – 8:30 PM. Hors d'oeuvres and cash bar will be provided.
In addition, raffle tickets will be for sale on the night of the reception. The drawing will be held on Thursday, February 2nd at 7:30pm. So far, donated items from the community include $100 from Cello, $25 from Dave’s Sushi, $25 from Ace Hardware, a gift certificate from La Parilla, Colombos, HeyDay, Josh DeWeese, Sola Cafe, and donations from Tart! Last year we had a fantastic turnout for donations, and we hope for the same this year. All proceeds from the raffle go to the HEC Gallery and Waller-Yoblonsky Gallery.
This year's juror is Royce Smith, the new Dean of the College of Arts and Architecture at Montana State University. An award-winning professor and self-described creative thinker, Smith has innovated international service learning experiences for his students and has curated exhibitions in Paraguay, Cuba, Brazil and Australia. He is a recipient of the 2015 Wichita State University President’s Innovation Award. In 2015, Smith won a Fulbright Award to Paraguay to create and curate the Asunción Biennial, a first-ever, large-scale exhibition of international contemporary art. He also was selected to chair a panel and give a presentation at the Theoretical Forum for the 30th anniversary of the Havana Biennale in Cuba and gave an invited lecture at the "Biennials: Prospect and Perspectives" symposium hosted by the World Biennial Forum at the ZKM Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany. He has been an excellent and exciting addition to the College of Arts and Architecture.
As a note, this years' exhibition has a strong social and political tone, reflecting what is on the minds of our undergraduates.
The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is located on the second floor of Haynes Hall. Please note that the parking passes are required for parking during the business day (6AM - 6PM).
