Merging Concepts VIII: Connections, Remembered

April 21, 2022

APRIL 22 - SEPTEMBER 4, 2022

Students enrolled in the 2021-22 Museum Studies Certificate Program are pleased to present an exhibition titled Connections, Remembered, which will be featured at Kennedy Museum of Art from April 22 through September 4, 2022. This is the eighth annual exhibition of the Kennedy’s Merging Concepts Series. Inspired by primary objects and documents on loan from the Ohio University Libraries, the exhibition explores the big idea “The very vehicles through which we strengthen intimate bonds leave marks that shape the future.” The big idea or concept is supported by additional objects and documents from the collections of the program’s partners.

Students in this one-year certificate program represent various disciplines across the Ohio University Athens campus. The students are responsible for researching, selecting, and interpreting all objects in the exhibition. They must also plan, design, develop educational content, and install the exhibition. The fall semester is lecture-based while the spring session is a practicum. Undergraduate (with a junior or senior standing) and graduate students who are enrolled in a degree program at Ohio University are eligible to apply.

The Museum Studies Certificate Program is part of the School of Art + Design, and is made possible thanks to the generous expertise and contributions of partners in the Biomedical Sciences Department, Southeast Ohio History Center, Ohio University Libraries, Cannabis Museum, and Kennedy Museum of Art.
