In Response: Currently Showing at the Nancy Lincoln Gallery

Currently showing in the NLG: In Response

September 8 – October 3

This show, inspired by the work of Rachel Perry Welty, asks students of four different Beaver visual arts classes:

What would a gallery exhibit look like based on empty snack and cereal boxes? 

Each class will have one week in the gallery, and they will use snack and cereal boxes to answer the essential questions of their course. The work from all four classes will culminate in an exhibit in October.

  • Week 1: September 8-12, Fieldwork class
  • Week 2: September 15-19, Mashup
  • Week 3: September 22-26, Visual Art Workshop (Middle School)
  • Week 4: September 29-October 3, Media and Message class

This post will be updated throughout the four weeks to show what students are working on.

Week 4: Media & Message
The Media & Message class has turned the Nancy Lincoln Gallery into a logo crime scene. They created human outlines out of snack and cereal boxes that tell stories of criminal acts, popular culture, and brand acquisition.Logo crime scene by  the Media and Message class


Week 3: Visual Art Workshop

Week 2: Mashup
The Mashup class jumped in and transformed the basketball court from the Fieldwork’s class into a dimly lit space with shapes and shadowy silhouettes.

    Did you change your original idea mid process?

    What made you choose triangles instead of another shape? Was this part of the tranquil theme?

    I was surprised to see more materials than boxes, why were you allowed to use more than just boxes? What was the process of getting the other materials?

    Did you guys ever think about using extra lighting or another soothing color?

    If you guys had more time to work on this, what would you add?

    Why did you choose to use the shape that this sculpture took.

    why not use mats in a yoga studio?
    why only use half of the gallery?
