Merging Concepts: In These Moments

Opening Reception Friday April 19, 2024, 5:30-7 pm 
Gallery Talk Wednesday, April 24, 2-3 pm 

Merging Concepts is an annual exhibition curated by students in the Museum Studies Certificate program. In this iteration, In These Moments, we explore how storytellers capture emotions, recall events, and create works of art to visualize a narrative. 

The Museum Studies Certificate is a transdisciplinary academic program offered by the School of Art + Design and the College of Fine Arts. Graduate and undergraduate students represent various disciplines across the Ohio University Athens campus and curate, design, and install an exhibition during the spring semester practicum. Students are responsible for researching, selecting, and interpreting the objects in the exhibition, designing the layout, and developing educational programming.

Course content for Museum Fundamentals I and II is taught by Kennedy Museum of Art staff. This program is made possible thanks to the generous expertise and contributions of partners in the Biomedical Sciences Department, Southeast Ohio History Center, Ohio University Libraries, Ohio Museum Complex, and Kennedy Museum of Art.
