Three current exhibitions at the MUW Galleries highlight artwork from the university permanent art collection.
"Mississippi Artists from the Permanent Collection" is an annual offering, but with several new acquisitions on display the exhibition takes on a new freshness. The exhibition includes early artwork from the inception of the permanent collection in 1948 to artwork acquired this summer. "Mississippi Artists from the Permanent Collection" closes Friday, Sept. 27.
"Looking at Art" is an interactive exhibition that teaches the viewer how to analyze artistic compositions.
"People are sometimes uncomfortable in art galleries because they don't know how to interpret the artwork," said MUW Galleries Director Beverly Joyce, "This exhibition teaches viewers how to decipher some of the artist's choices in order to better understand the art."
"Looking at Art" closes Friday, Sept. 13.
"European Prints from the Permanent Collection" features original works of art by well-known and historically important artists. This exhibition closes Tuesday, Sept. 10.
The Mississippi University for Women Galleries, located on the first floor of Summer Hall, are open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., following the university calendar. Touring the galleries is free to the public.
