The MSU College of Arts and Architecture's President's Fine Arts Series is a series of free artistic and cultural events focusing on women in the arts in celebration of Women's History Month. Art, architecture and photo exhibitions as well as film screenings and a musical performance, all focused on women, will be held throughout March. The three exhibits that will be on display are:
"Pioneers of Modernism," which celebrates the work of artists Gennie Adams DeWeese, Frances Senska, and Jessie Wilbur, is on display through March 30 in the Dean's Gallery in the College of Arts and Architecture dean's office, room 217 of Cheever Hall. Both Senska and Wilbur, now deceased, were professors of art at MSU. DeWeese, a prolific and acclaimed artist, also deceased, was married to Bob DeWeese, who was also a professor and head of what was then the art department at MSU.
"Identity/Representation," a student and faculty exhibition from the MSU School of Film and Photography, that explores themes of identity and exploration incorporating lens-based media, is on display in the Helen E. Copeland Gallery from March 1-7.
"Personal Vision," the MSU School of Film and Photography's Annual Juried Undergraduate Photography Exhibit, a juried student exhibition of photography by undergraduate students, will be on display in Cheever's Lower Gallery from March 5-30.
All of the exhibits are free and open to the public.
