It is one of those times for the Kresge Gallery where it is in between exhibitions. With Spring Break beginning this week, the Kresge Gallery has seen an array of works from the beginning of March. Sculpture students presented their cardboard sculptures, the Art Department and the Office of Diversity are sponsoring an exhibit, and later a student show.
The students that are currently enrolled in a sculpture class occupied the gallery for a short period of time. I was able to ask a sculpture student, Paige Owings, about their recent project. Paige informed me that for the cardboard sculptures, inspired by Duchamp, they began by having a string and having to draw any shapes onto cardboard. From those random shapes created they then had to built a 3-D sculpture out of cardboard.
It is interesting to see the array of solutions that each student has come up with to resolve the project given to them. The cardboard project reminds me of the wood sculpture project that a lot of three dimensional design students also had to do, but taken a few steps further. Another short exhibition that the Kresge Gallery will be holding is honoring Black History Month and Women’s History Month.

Later in the month of March a few Marywood students will be curating a show in the Kresge Gallery about how things in this world are identified by the human eye. Stay tuned on Where Creativity Works for more about this exhibition.
