THIS FRIDAY

ESCAPE PGH
Carnegie Mellon 2010 MFA Thesis Exhibition
March 19 - April 18, 2010


Artists: Brian Brown, Amanda Long, Leslie McAhren, Gian Carlos Silva de Jesus, Jonathan Trueblood, Derk Wolmuth

The Miller Gallery hosts the annual Carnegie Mellon MFA Thesis Exhibition, opening this Friday from 6 to 8pm.

John Carson, the Regina and Marlin Miller Professor and Head of the School of Art writes, "In the MFA program at Carnegie Mellon we encourage the exploration of every available territory for artistic practice. These six emerging artists will delight the eye, stretch the mind, arouse the senses, warm your heart, touch your wallet and give you cause for concern.

Elements of risk and experimentation are present throughout the three-year graduate program at Carnegie Mellon School of Art. The unpredictability of the final result is what makes the process challenging and exciting. What you see here in the gallery is more propositional than conclusive."

You are cordially invited to come to the artists' tours, hear the artists talk about their ideas and intentions, and offer your own interpretation of the works through open discussion.

RECENT PRESS

OUR 1ST REVIEW IN
ART IN AMERICA!


"The [Fall 2009] exhibition 29 Chains to the Moon took Fuller's utopian thesis as a jumping-off point, and aimed to instill in today's public the same sense of awe that futuristic proposals once stirred.

The show presented three projects by artists developing 21st-century ideas (some actually in the testing stage) to tackle big problems. It might be futile to exhibit world-saving proposals in a traditional art space, where they could seem to be nothing more than conceptual exercises, but the mix of novel ideas in this show suggested that people working in diverse disciplines might collectively yield solutions to some looming predicaments. The Miller Gallery's location on Carnegie Mellon's campus was an appropriate setting for an exhibition of works by individuals or collaboratives with varied backgrounds...

That some of these projects might be realized suggests that open exchange between artists and scientists, along with institutional support, may provide the creative solutions necessary to assure a livable future." - M. Kuntz, Art in America, March 2010

THE HIP GUIDE TO PITTSBURGH

"The last word on what's hip in Pittsburgh should go to Tom Sokolowski, the director of the Warhol [Museum]... Arts-wise, he likes the work and the vibe at the Miller Gallery at CMU" - E. Labalme, Pop City Media, Feb. 2010
