As a teaching museum, the mission of the Wright Museum of Art advances the educational goals of Beloit College. Our principal purpose is to provide the college and local community with diverse opportunities to appreciate, interact with, and understand the visual arts through exhibitions, collections, and programming. The Wright promotes experiential learning through an engagement with art that is both visual and tactile. It also endeavors to promote a critical reading of art as it shapes our cultural and intellectual history.
The Wright Museum of Art is proud to present the triennial Beloit College Studio Art Faculty Exhibition, opening February 14th. Entitled Unconditioned Space, the show features artwork by Scott Espeseth, Mark Klassen, Meredith Root, and George Williams, and will include paintings, drawings, installation, and an animated video. Unconditioned Space refers to the enclosed parts of a building that are not heated or cooled (think basements, garages, and crawl spaces.) Though often rough, utilitarian, or “less civilized” than living spaces, they are often centers of creativity within the home or workplace, where messes and noise can be made without disturbing the comforts of the daily routine. A gallery talk and accompanying reception will be held February 26th at 12:30pm. Click here for the exhibit page
