The Maslow Gallery for Contemporary Art is a hidden gem among Marywood’s campus. Lucky for me, as an Arts Administration student, I was let in on the secret of the collection early in my college career. Now as a senior and soon to be graduate (what?!) I am utilizing The Maslow Collection in my senior Contemporary Art independent study. With the collection, I am curating my own exhibit for the Senior Show. This exhibit is the culmination of basically my entire arts administration/art history college career in one shot. Granted, I’m so pumped, yet nervous! (Stay tuned for next week’s post; it will be featuring my Senior Show!)
Regardless, through the process of choosing pieces for my exhibit, I have been able to further familiarize myself with The Maslow Collection. I love walking through the storage and gallery and discovering a new artist or piece. It has been enriching surrounding myself with this impressive collection of contemporary art.

Here are a few of my current favorites from the collection. What makes you connect with them? Let me know what you think!
