The Library Gallery at Sonoma State University is pleased to present the exhibition, Millennial Mind: Topics for the 21st Century, which opens on Friday, May 4 with a public reception on Thursday, May 10 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. The show will remain on view through Friday, July 27, 2018. The exhibition is being organized by the students in ARTH 494: Museum Theory and Practice, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Schwager.
Art has always reflected the times in which it is created, and art by current college and university students is no exception. The concept for Millennial Mind grew out of a discussion among SSU's Museum Theory and Practice students in response to an invitation from the SSU Library to present an exhibition of student art. The Museum students were interested in how issues in the news today-gun violence, immigration, gender and ethnicity, technology-were affecting their peers in studio courses who were creating art against the background of these complex and often troubling events. As the discussion grew, so did the concept of the exhibition, which ultimately resulted in invitations to art students in colleges and universities throughout the Bay Area to submit work to be considered for the show. To date, in addition to SSU, students from Napa Valley College, San Francisco State University, Santa Rosa Junior College, UC Berkeley, and UC Davis have submitted work in a variety of media for the exhibition.
Millennial Mind promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking exhibition that will offer viewers an insight into what the next generation of artists is thinking about and how the events of today are shaping their work.
