The 2013 Juried Alumni Exhibition Opening was a hit! With a great turn out at the opening followed by a post-opening event at Snarf’s sponsored by DU ART, the evening was filled with guests enjoying food, beverage, live music, and fantastic art. There is a wide variety of talent and media to be seen in this exhibition featuring former students of the School of Art and Art History. The show will run until November 17th, so if you did not get a chance to make the opening there is still time to stop in. The Myhren Gallery is open Monday through Sunday from 12-4 pm. Do not miss out on the fun and join us for the next DU ART event, a workshop offered by Professor Deborah Howard on Oct. 26th.

Please join Victoria H. Myhren Gallrey and the School of Art and Art History at the University of Denver for the opening reception of Tim Schwartz: Materials on Reserve on Thursday, April 18, 2013. The reception will be from 5-7pm and refreshments will be provided. This exhibition will be on view through May 5, 2013 and gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 12-6pm and Friday-Sunday 12-4pm.

Conceptual artist Tim Schwartz is known for blending old and new technologies, often studying the losses that occur with digitization—and what are the effects of this loss? Mastering the very system he often critiques, he uses digital methods that help us to highlight gaps in the transfer of information. For this installation, Schwartz used an algorithm to select nearly 600 volumes which form a portrait of book browsing habits at DU. He has created a space for people to use as a traditional library, while physically and digitally documenting their interactions with books.
