Junior Curator Favorites 2013
The Junior Curators took a behind the scenes tour of this gallery space, while the show was being installed.
Students photographed artwork and object labeling strategies in this gallery.
Bonnie Wright is the Junior Curator program instructor.
Warren Bunn gave the Junior Curators a tour of the Changing Gallery (which features the Life on a String exhibition this year), prep room, staging room, and conservation laboratory.
The students toured the Library, including the newly expanded condensed storage area, and researched various contemporary artists.
The Studio is the Museum's international glassworking school. The Junior Curators convened here during the spring of 2013 and curated their own exhibition, Life's Memories.
Silvia Levenson believes her work is an expression of her soul. She uses glass not for its natural beauty, but for its potential as a narrative medium.
The students enjoyed her work, both in the Museum and at The Studio.
Levenson is offering a course, “The Skin of Objects,” from September 2 - 7, 2013, at The Studio.
This piece, on display in the Contemporary Gallery, was a favorite of many of the Junior Curators.
Levenson says, "My art is about my life. Everyone has anxieties and fears, and I try to resolve some of these feelings in my work."
This husband and wife team of glass artists have taught many times at The Studio. They have several pieces on display at The Studio.
Though this piece is not on display in the Museum's galleries, it is by one of the students' favorite artists, Stephen Powell.
Powell does, however, have a piece on display at The Studio.
This piece is part of the Masters of Studio Glass: Richard Marquis exhibition, on display through February 2, 2014.
Students took a tour of the Conservation Lab.
The Junior Curators saw this piece while it was being cleaned in the Conservation Lab, in preparation for the Life on a String exhibition.
