Flat Worlds Art Exhibit on Display

Flat Worlds Art Exhibit on Display

By Taylor Morrow

Menlo College and the Menlo College Art Committee invite you to come to the Administration Building on campus to view Flat Worlds, a new art exhibit now on display. The exhibit includes works by artists Olaitan Callender-Scott, Karen Chew, Peter Foley, Gale Kiniry, and Laurie Szujewska. All of these artists were also featured in the recent “85 Years 85 Artists” exhibit here at Menlo.

The title Flat Worlds was chosen for this exhibit to pose the question “Is an artwork ever flat and is our conception of the world ever more than two-dimensional?” Menlo College Art Committee Chair Erik Bakke expands on the meaning of the art exhibit title by stating, “The title Flat Worlds helps us think about how art functions and, more importantly, how our imagination functions. Artists introduce us to the sublime and to what we hitherto had not noticed in quotidian life.”

The Menlo College Art Committee holds many different art shows throughout the year, all of which are displayed in the Administration Building. The exhibit is free, and open to the public.

Flat Worlds will be on display at Menlo College through the end of the semester.
