Out of concern for public health and safety issues related to COVID-19, The Galleries remain closed to the public until further notice. All internal programs and public events scheduled to take place have been canceled or reimagined in a virtual space. As new information becomes available, any changes will be communicated through social media and our website.
Our thoughts now are on those who have been affected by this global crisis and on those in our Philadelphia community who are feeling its impacts—please be safe and take care of yourselves and one another. For up-to-date information about the College's COVID-19 response plan, please visit moore.edu/coronavirus.
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR SPACES
COLLECTIONS: ART WE LOVE
In lieu of presenting new work that would be inaccessible to the public, we invited members of the Moore community to submit a favorite piece from their own personal collections. On view through March 26, the show takes us behind the screens of the people we see during video calls and into their living spaces.
Featuring the work of three faculty members who recently completed sabbaticals, this exhibition gives our community a glimpse into the research and experimentation that Moore's teachers pursue outside of the classroom. On view are new projects by Robert Goodman, Asuka Goto, and Lynn Palewicz.
VIRTUAL: MFA/MA THESIS EXHIBITION
Featuring work by graduates in Moore's MFA in Socially Engaged Studio Art (Sara Kleinert and Chelsey Webber-Brandis) and MA in Socially Engaged Art (Camille O'Connor) programs. See their thesis projects online, view their CVs, business cards, and contact our graduates for professional opportunities at moorethesis.com.
VIRTUAL: SENIOR SHOW 2020
An annual exhibition featuring work by graduating seniors in culmination of their four years in Moore’s Bachelor of Fine Arts programs, including Animation & Game Arts, Art Education, Art History, Fine Arts, Curatorial Studies, Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design and Photography & Digital Arts. See their thesis projects online, view their CVs, business cards, and contact our graduates for professional opportunities at moorethesis.com.
Here & There: Alumni Invitational Exhibition
Here & There highlights the work of six alumni whose artistic practices explore themes of "place." Through painting, photography, sculpture, and community engagement, the exhibition presents a variety of ways to understand how artists question, embrace, and interact with their surroundings. Featuring projects by Anne Canfield ’99 (BFA), Robin Dintiman ’72 (BFA), Naomieh Jovin ’17 (BFA), Michelle Angela Ortiz ’00 (BFA), Laura Petrovich-Cheney ’11 (MFA), and Rachel Wallis ’16 (MA).
RINGS! offers a glimpse into the boundless creative freedom revealed within the ring form. This international selection brings together over one hundred rings that demonstrate the artists’ wide-ranging expressions through a variety of aesthetic and conceptual ideas. From the traditional techniques of metalsmithing to avant-garde materials and approaches, the rings on view will offer a new examination of the cultural, political, and personal meanings of the ring itself. Countries represented in the exhibition: Australia, Austria, England, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. Organized by Helen Drutt, researched by Elizabeth Essner with assistance from Colleen Terrell.
