Students “Displays” Artistry For Community
By Cheval John
Students from the Department of Art at Sam Houston State University took their talents to a whole new level with the grand opening of the SHSU Student Gallery in Huntsville, Texas.
The 1,450 square-foot gallery is an expansion of the on-campus Gaddis Geeslin Gallery that gives them the opportunity to display their works to the wider community.
Of course, to be able to say that you had the opportunity to curate for the grand opening is something that a person can show on their resume.
The students from the “Museum and Gallery Practices” class, taught by associate professor and chair of the department Michael Henderson*, curated the “Zeitgeist” works for the opening.
In addition to the curation, the class along with the Student Art Association* renovated the building which took several months
The art from “Zeitgeist” will be in the gallery until March 29th.
Here is a clip from the grand opening of the gallery:
