A Post-Communist Picnic, Yi Sheng 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

A Post-Communist Picnic, Yi Sheng

Theses and Dissertations

Signaling the moon, packing balls of mud, carving a big sphere, cleaning with a giant unwieldy mop, playing with indigo, wrangling cardboard, setting sunflowers ablaze, playing a tune with a soda bottle, taking a walk with other people’s laundry, kindling smoke signals, weaving a bed, cracking seeds all night, listening to sleep, dressing a plant, these are some of the activities that have been incorporated into my work over the last two years. Most ideas begin in the studio and then are realized outside. Many of the tasks mentioned allow me to easily integrate into a crowd, where the ...


Wearing My Heart On My Sleeve, Sam Hunter 2010 James Madison University

Wearing My Heart On My Sleeve, Sam Hunter

Masters Theses

Wearing My Heart On My Sleeve is a collection of fabric and fiber works that focus on issues related to my recovery from a heart attack. Using the hospital gown and other garment forms as templates for self-portraiture, I explore the emotions surrounding the diagnosis and subsequent management of my chronic health condition. My art-making process combines tradition and technology, using modern, high-speed sewing machines and computers to create the fabric for contemporary interpretations of traditional garment and needlecraft forms. I am also concerned with the use of language and words as critical design elements for the fabrics I create ...


A Verbal Snapshot Of Visual Scrutiny Primarily In The Sphere Of Art, Matthew Alverson 2010 Virginia Commonwealth University

A Verbal Snapshot Of Visual Scrutiny Primarily In The Sphere Of Art, Matthew Alverson

Theses and Dissertations

Finding and extracting meaning from the world I encounter every day is the primary motivation behind my creativity. Filtering perception and separating the important bits of information by selection or elimination is the crux of this investigation. This process is one of finding rationale in futility and applying meaning to meaningless encounters. The significance of life is not fixed and it is our responsibility to make it up to best suit the desire to have purpose. Depending on the way something is looked at determines the meaning behind it. Anything can have content if it is seen and translated a ...


Incognesia, Holly George 2010 James Madison University

Incognesia, Holly George

Masters Theses

A monograph for the MFA Thesis Exhibition for Holly George, exhibited in Sawhill Gallery in Duke Hall April 5, 2010 - April 10, 2010. The title of the exhibition, Incognesia, is indicative of the artist's process of mapmaking. It is a fusion of other words, an invention based on fact but nevertheless on the verge of fantasy. Like each word in Lewis Caroll's poem, "Jabberwocky," the title calls multiple meanings to mind. It utilizes the Latin incognitae, meaning "unknown," but also references its later cartographic usage of "undiscovered" lands. While the suffix, -nesia, links to a series of islands ...

Effectiveness Of Catalog Printing On Online Consumers, Sarah Chan 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Effectiveness Of Catalog Printing On Online Consumers, Sarah Chan

Graphic Communication

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate how catalog printing could still have a significant impact on the behavior of online shoppers. It is a common trend in companies to use print catalog as more of a branding vehicle than a selling tool. Often, print catalogs are an essential tool in reinforcing a company’s brand image. Using catalog printing could potentially enhance company brand image and extend services and products being offered to consumers and prospective clients.

The Logic Of Objects, David B. Eichelberger 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

The Logic Of Objects, David B. Eichelberger

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

The human mind assimilates information and experiences quickly and constantly, and is aided by mental systems that we rely on to function. We classify the input of our lives with extreme efficiency. Our notions about the things we encounter in the world are learned from past experiences, and these expectations help us file the data of our lives. My work is composed to create pause. I am interested in slowing down the processes of assimilation by manipulating our expectations, and extending events measured in microseconds into saturated and engaging experiences. Functional qualities, visual rhythms, and exaggerated proportions are some of ...


Voyage To Italia: Americans In Italy In The Nineteenth Century, Genevieve Ellerbee 2010 Associate Registrar and Curator of Voyage to Italia: Americans in Italy in the Nineteenth Century

Voyage To Italia: Americans In Italy In The Nineteenth Century, Genevieve Ellerbee

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

ItalY had long been a destination for American travelers, but by the nineteenth century American tourists flooded into Rome and Florence, hunted for picturesque vistas on the Bay of Naples and roamed through ancient ruins in Paestum. Armed with Baedeker guidebooks or the Hand-Book for American Travellers in Europe, Collated from the Best Authorities, they sought the authentic spirit of Dante, Petrarch, and Virgil, and chronicled their lengthy tours in detailed journals and letters to friends. Americans traveled to Italy for various reasons: to gain social prestige, to pursue artistic and literary interests, or simply to enjoy a beautiful country ...


Women Artists In The Collection, 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Women Artists In The Collection

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

This special exhibition of the permanent collection focuses exclusively on the contributions of American women artists. The fact of women's historical exclusion from the art world is part of the exploration, "Why have there been no great women artists?"-art historian Linda Nochlin famously asked in a 1971 essay. Her findings pointed to the past exclusion of women from working with male nude models, hence apprenticeships, then professions and academies, to which we add commercial gallery exhibitions, art criticism, and art history. Over the centuries this vicious cycle has shaped the current phenomenon: the predominance of male artists in ...


Agents Of Change: Mexican Muralists And New Deal Artists, Judy Zlotsky, Norman Zlotsky, Blana Salazar 2010 Sheldon Museum of Arts

Agents Of Change: Mexican Muralists And New Deal Artists, Judy Zlotsky, Norman Zlotsky, Blana Salazar

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

Agents of Change: Mexican Muralists and New Deal Artists features works by artists from Mexico and the United States and demonstrates the close ties between them in the 1930s and' 40s.

Dan Christensen: Forty Years Of Painting, Sharon L. Kennedy 2010 Curator of Cultural and Civic Engagement at Sheldon Museum of Art

Dan Christensen: Forty Years Of Painting, Sharon L. Kennedy

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

Art critic Clement Greenberg described Dan Christensen (1942-2007) as "one of the painters on whom the course of American Art depends." 1 This retrospective exhibition documents Christensen's life-long quest to understand the possibilities of color, paint, and pictorial space. Though long associated with Color Field painting, Christensen's relentless experimentation with style and technique places him among this country's most ambitious abstract and gestural painters.

Christensen was born in Lexington, Nebraska and grew up outside of Cozad. As a teenager Christensen listened to music on radio stations from Shreveport and Little Rock and grew fond of soul, blues ...


Divine Abstractions: Spiritual Expressions In Art, Susan J. Soriente 2010 Sheldon Statewide Curator, University of Nebraska- Lincoln

Divine Abstractions: Spiritual Expressions In Art, Susan J. Soriente

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

In Northern Europe during the early 1800s, artists began departing from the rationalism of the Enlightenment and the realism of traditional artwork. Their desire to express the mysterious and unseen essence of the divine through their artwork transformed the way we think about art. Called Romanticists, these artists valued subjective experience over reason and the individual experience rather than the collective. They abandoned conventional religious iconography and produced private, intensely meditative images, depicting the divine as something eternal and infinite. These artists believed that material reality hindered experiencing the divine. They sought to fracture the shell of physical reality to ...


Flowers, Lies And Revolution: Contemporary Cuban Art, Jorge Daniel Veneciano, Sharon L. Kennedy, Britt-Marie Varisco 2010 Director at Sheldon Museum of Art

Flowers, Lies And Revolution: Contemporary Cuban Art, Jorge Daniel Veneciano, Sharon L. Kennedy, Britt-Marie Varisco

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

Flowers, Lies and Revolution surveys some themes that emerge in contemporary Cuban art, as revealed in three private collections in Lincoln, Nebraska. What a landlocked state and a sea locked nation share are the desires, comforts, and complexities of the other. This exhibition celebrates the transnational scope and vision witnessed in the breadth and focus of the three local collections: those of Karen and Robert Duncan, Kathy and Marc LeBaron, and Lisa and Tom Smith.

The collections represent the dominant trends of a new generation of Cuban artists that emerged in the last 30 years. Their work continues a tradition ...


Parallel Starts Outsider Art Inside Collections, Sharon L. Kennedy 2010 Curator of Cultural and Civic Engagement at Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, University of Nebraska- Lincoln

Parallel Starts Outsider Art Inside Collections, Sharon L. Kennedy

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

As the term implies, "outsider" artists tend to work in isolation with little interest in other artists' styles or methods. Such independence from the social and cultural norms that have shaped art history provides scholars with few clues from which to proceed.

Norman Geske, Sheldon Director Emeritus and exhibition curator, defines outsider art as follows:

Essentially, outsider art is the art that derives from the creative instinct, which is inherent in human beings who are entirely independent of any of the conventions of traditional art history. In these, works, subject matter, method, and technique are subsumed in the intrinsic impulse ...
