Artist Conversations

Strong work from many of you this week. Here are a few examples:

Art Experience

Don’t Touch the Art!!

Lost of great videos this week. And it’s very cool that some of you made your videos in and around the School of Art, Art Gallery Complex! One surprise and disappointment was seeing many of you touch the art in the galleries!?!?

You should NEVER touch art in an Art Gallery or Art Museum! Occasionally the artist might intend for art to be touched or interacted with. But this is never the norm. If you see a sign inviting you to touch something, then you can touch that element. If you’re unsure, you can go ask the artist at an SOA Gallery, or ask the receptionist at any other type of Art Gallery you might visit.

Art is often fragile. Popular art can be seen by many millions of people. Many artists go through great effort and expense to create archival artworks that can endure over many centuries. All of this fragile art and human culture can be damaged by acid from your hands, by accidental mechanical damage from touching, by being bumped into by your backpack when you walk around or take a step back to take a photo.
