Snapshots of Brown: Art Exhibits

Bell Gallery

It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words.  While that may be true, there is also a lot of value in the story behind the picture.  Let Snapshots of Brown with Corrine Szczesny introduce you to the majestic college campus and deep-rooted traditions of Brown University.

One of the things I love most about Brown is that there is always something to do on campus.  Over the past few weeks, I have been drawn into visiting some interesting art exhibitions here at Brown.  One of these exhibitions is the 250th Anniversary Alumni Exhibition at the David Winton Bell Gallery.  The Bell Gallery is located in List Art Center, and is known as Brown’s contemporary art gallery.  As part of the 250th anniversary, six different alumni artists will have their work displayed in the gallery.

The first exhibition features the work of Dawn Clements ’86, Paul Ramirez Jonas ’87, and Kerry Tribe ’97.  The picture above is of The Commons, a cork sculpture by Jonas.  The sculpture is modeled after a statue of Marcus Aurelius at the Capitoline Museum in Rome; there is also a copy of this statue on Simmon’s Quad.

A second set of exhibitions, featuring Sarah Morris ’89, Rob Reynolds ’90, and Taryn Simon ’97, will be shown from April 12th through May 25th, 2014.
