ART SMP In-Progress Exhibition

Environmental Justice as a Civil Right
"Environmental Justice as a Civil Right" which was first exhibited at the architecture pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Antigua and Barbuda are affected by climate change drastically like many other tiny islands when the amount of pollution to affect the climate is caused by larger countries. In the wake of multiple hurricanes destroying Barbuda completely in 2017 and government buildings in Antigua, this exhibit also discusses the restoration process afterwards.
The Stadium and Spectacle: The Art of Show in the College’s Fine Art Collection
Developed to coincide with the 2019 dedication of the Jamie L. Roberts Stadium at St. Mary’s College of Maryland, “The Stadium and Spectacle: The Art of Show in the College’s Fine Art Collection” invites visitors to explore complex connections through themes of competition, performance, and display. These themes resonate in twenty works from campus collections, some of which are on public display for the first time. The exhibition provides a platform to discover cross-connections in formal qualities and interrelations in subject matter and context of paintings, prints, and sculptures of artists like Marc Chagall, Salvador Dali, and Diego Rivera.

American Modernism in the Bocour Collection at St. Mary’s College of Maryland
This is an exhibition of work from the St. Mary’s Fine Art Collection. The art in this show comes specifically from a large donation by the collector Leonard Bocour, who worked in collaboration with the founding director of the Boyden Gallery Jonathan Ingersoll. The exhibition’s goal is to explore the visual and conceptual principles of American Modernism represented by this collection. The donations Bocour made to St. Mary’s provide the opportunity for the work of these New York-based artists, largely ignored by encyclopedic art history texts, to be put into historical context and expand the scope of modern art. The show allows us to see the inner workings of the New York art scene of the mid 20th century and recognize those modern artists on the edge of art history. Curated by Sami Wright (Art History and History ‘18) with help from Joe Lucchesi (Professor of Art History)
