Field trip to: NAGAS AT THE NASH
NAGAS AT THE NASH The Katherine E. Nash Gallery is proud to present NAGAS, the North American Graduate Art Survey, a juried exhibition featuring 49 students from 30 graduate art programs throughout North America. The exhibition opens on June 13 and runs through July 14, 2006. A public reception is scheduled for Friday, June 16 from 6-8:30 pm. The idea for the exhibition was conceived by a group of graduate students in the Department of Art's graduate program at the University of Minnesota. Their intent was to organize an exhibition that represented the diversity of creative work by students in graduate art programs throughout the continent of North America. 49 artists were juried into the exhibition, which will include over 80 pieces from a variety of art mediums. Juror for NAGAS was Diane Mullin, curator at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art.

For this assignment we will be writing about an artwork that is currently on exhibit in the NASH gallery as part of the NAGAS exhibit. Responses will be posted on the Electronic Art class blog.
