High Museum Reception, Feb. 2014

Students Exhibit at the High MuseumEighty-five works from Brenau University students, most majoring in fine arts and interior design, were displayed from Jan. 28 t0 Feb. 14 in a special exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

Part of Brenau’s unique academic partnership with the High, the exhibition in the museum’s Greene Family Education Center included digital prints, ceramics, oil and acrylic paintings, stoneware and mixed media.

“This is an extraordinary opportunity for our students to exhibit their work at an internationally known museum of art,” said Brenau’s Department of Interior Design Chair Lynn M. Jones.

Mary Beth Looney, Brenau’s Department Chair and Professor of Art and Design, shared the same enthusiasm about the exhibition. “This is the first time we [Brenau] are doing this, and we are very excited about it.”

Student works were selected based on the fall juried design exhibition and award winning work from past Brenau Collaboratives and the MID/MFA Portfolio Exhibitions. Selected works were chosen by faculty and some were award winners from the juried exhibition in the fall. This is an interdisciplinary exhibition including works from Brenau students studying art and design, interior design, mass communication, theater and liberal arts, but students studying other majors had works in the exhibit as well.
