The McDonough Museum opens the fall exhibition schedule with Reunion II Alumni Invitational on Saturday, September 13 with a public reception (sponsored by Martini Brothers) from 6-8pm. The exhibition runs through November 7, 2014.
The Department of Art together with the McDonough Museum of Art have invited a selection of the most distinguished alumni, many of whom have achieved national and international recognition, to participate in a group exhibition, the second in a series of alumni invitationals. The entire faculty and emeritus faculty of the Department of Art were asked to submit names of former students whose art and design careers they have followed. From these submissions came the group of 56 artists featured in this exhibition.
Among the varied submissions the exhibition will feature an installation on the exterior of the Museum by Vaughn Wascovich and a limited edition t-shirt designed by Justin Carolyne for sale at the McDonough. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share with the community these accomplished artists and designers who continue to cultivate their craft.
The Fall Lecture Series in the McDonough Museum Auditorium will include several alumni. Vaughn Wascovich, an Associate Professor of Photography at Texas A&M University/Commerce, will speak on Wednesday, September 10, 5:30-6:30pm, Bill Tomory, an Account Representative at Knepper Press will speak on Wednesday, October 8, 5:30-6:30pm and Chris Ross, Preparator at the Akron Art Museum, will speak on Wednesday, October 15, 5:30-6:30pm.
