Art faculty exhibition Sept. 21 through Oct. 10

Sept. 5, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- The WMU Department of Art is presenting an exhibition by the department's full- and part-time faculty and professional staff members in the Dalton Center Multimedia Room Sept. 21 through Oct. 10. Viewing hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The opening reception is Friday, Sept. 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. Parking is free after 4 p.m. on Friday in faculty and students lots and there is easy access for the handicapped.

Phil Vander Weg, department chair, says, "A primary strength of the Western Michigan University Art Department faculty has always been its diversity and commitment to creative excellence. They strive to remain situated in the mainstream of contemporary ideas and professional activity. Media experimentation and blends are counterpoints to established approaches of a more traditional nature by those currently on exhibit. This affords a first-hand look at serious artists that are setting trends and making news across the country and abroad while on their home turf."

A continuing exhibit by the Department of Art faculty is in the Administrative Suite in Seibert Administration Building. The Department of Art is located in Sangren Hall. For additional information, contact the Department of Art Exhibitions Office at 616 387-2455.
