Collections: Art We Love takes us behind the screens of the people we see during video calls and into their living spaces—the exhibition features works that are from the home collections of staff and faculty members of Moore College of Art & Design. 

“We've welcomed students and colleagues into our homes virtually and it's been interesting to see the colorful walls, windows, light fixtures, pets, plants, books, tchotchkes, and all kinds of other stuff in those tiny Zoom frames,” says Gabrielle Lavin Suzenski, Rochelle F. Levy Director of The Galleries at Moore. “We’re bringing some of the art and design from those virtual snapshots into The Galleries at Moore for our internal community to experience in person.”

One of the rules of the exhibition is that the submitted art cannot have been made by the faculty or staff person.

“It should be someone else's creation—it doesn't matter who, just that it's ready to display,” said Suzenski. Participants also had to identify the artist or maker of the piece, describe their connection to it, and tell why they are drawn to it. Artwork submitted for the exhibition includes charcoal drawings, oil paintings, watercolor paintings, sculptures, photography and manufactured objects.

While the public can’t come into The Galleries to see the exhibition, parts of it will be visible from Race Street.

“I’ve staged a voyeuristic view into my home,” Suzenski says, “I am recreating parts of my dining and living rooms with my mid-century furniture, original art, lighting and other items.”
