Art, museum studies students curate two exhibits on view through May

Two exhibits curated by art and museum studies students are on view on campus and online at Ripon College. Both exhibits are available for viewing through May 16. On campus, they are on view in the Ripon College Museum in West Hall.

“Pastiche Painting: The Colorful and Cliché World of Paint-by-Number” explores this “interesting interaction between master work and very beginner work.” The works are on loan from an anonymous local collector.

“Boneheads: An Exploration of the Gross and Artistic Anatomy of Our Evolutionary Tree” features replica skulls made from plaster or resin that are owned by the College.

The classes that put the exhibits together were Controversies of Museum Studies, Controversies of Art and some students in the Senior Seminar in Art. The classes are taught together as a learning community, in which everyone is working on projects. The students selected the pieces displayed in the exhibits from larger collections.

Participating students include: Caroline Reid ’21 of Bloomington, Minnesota; Molly Waggoner ’21 of Pulaski, Wisconsin; Aftyn Reinwand ’23 of Chili, Wisconsin; Bailey Zanck ’22 of New Berlin, Wisconsin; Juliette Lingle ’22 of Carbondale, Illinois; Deonte Perry ’21 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Beatriz Quinteros ’22 of Cicero, Illinois; Miles Kremsreiter ’22 of Coleman, Wisconsin; Brianna Lyn Kirvan-Prieve ’22 of McFarland, Wisconsin; Adam Scholze ’22 of La Crosse, Wisconsin; Morgan Krogh ’22 of Racine, Wisconsin; and Hayley Corkran ’21 of Ripon, Wisconsin.
