About the Exhibition

[uh-bout] the1 [ek-suh-bish-uhn]

Hidden away for the past four years in the College of Fine Arts, “FROM THE VAULT” presents the artworks of Carnegie Mellon University’s finest degenerate delinquents, rebels with a cause, spiritual enthusiasts, and practical dreamers. The most creative criminals in the book, we present to you the class of 2009: *panpsychists, selcouthists, paralogists, and strikhedonists.* Painting, sculpture, electronic media, print, and performance – the students of the School of Art have carved new paths and wayward routes in the ever-changing realms of the visual. Today we release Carnegie Mellon’s best-kept secrets from the vault.
