Perceive with Caution: Merging Concepts VII

Perceive with Caution: Merging Concepts VII

April 16 – September 5, 2021, by appointment.

This exhibition was developed, curated, designed, and installed by students in the Museum Studies Certificate Program. Viewers are offered the opportunity to reflect on their own understanding about what it means to be human, as they interact with objects carefully crafted by the hands of artists or collected and preserved from the natural world that offer us a varied perspective on our own lives. The collection demonstrates that the ways in which we interpret and portray the world reflect our understanding of the human condition.

The Museum Studies Certificate is a transdisciplinary academic program offered by the School of Art + Design. Course content is developed and taught by Kennedy Museum of Art staff. This program is possible thanks to our partners who contribute their professional expertise and valuable collections. Featured are a variety of objects from the collections of the Southeast Ohio History Center, and Ohio University units including Ohio University Libraries, Biomedical Sciences Department, Department of Sociology and Anthropology and Kennedy Museum of Art.
