THE MILLER GALLERY AT
CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY supports the creation,
understanding and growth of contemporary art through exhibitions,
projects, lectures, events and publications. The gallery aspires
to engage diverse audiences and to create and strengthen communities
through art and ideas. The Miller Gallery was founded in 2000 by
Gouger Miller, artist, educator, businesswoman, arts patron
and alumna of Carnegie Mellon's School of Art. A unit of the College
of Fine Arts, the three-story, 9,000 square foot space is free and
open to the public and located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Carnegie Mellon 2010 MFA Thesis Exhibition
March 19 - April 18, 2010
Carlos Silva de Jesus, Jonathan
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.

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."

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"
