From the Editor

IN THIS ISSUE

Happy New Year! During this cold and sometimes dreary month of January—I hope that you will find the stories and listings of exhibitions, programs and events offered inside this issue great motivation to venture out into the cold and explore the Visual Arts at Miami. The Spring semester at the Art Museum is always exciting for me because it is when we have the most students connected by way of the capstone and student response exhibitions. Even more exciting is the fact that all three exhibitions are connected through the common theme related to the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I (WWI). Also happening during the Spring semester will be the unveiling of a new temporary sculpture in the park and the airing of a television series featuring the Art Museum and some of it’s collection. You will have to follow us on Facebook and check in regularly to learn more… Inside this issue I hope you enjoy learning about our exhibitions and programs, meeting one of our many magnificent docents and getting to know one of our interns. As with each issue we are happy to provide an at-a-glance picture of the plethora of fabulous visual arts exhibitions, programs and events at Miami University. I encourage you to use the schedule to plan on attending something once a week or more. Plenty of opportunities exist—ENJOY the Visual Arts at Miami and may your 2017 be Happy and Blessed! Sincerely,

From the Director November 11, 1918: Armistice Day in Oxford “The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” World War I often has been referred to as “the war to end all wars.” It was originally called The Great War, since at the time it was inconceivable that there would ever be a World War II. The end of The Great War was eagerly anticipated by the American public, which had sacrificed much blood, lives and treasure. 320,000 Americans were killed or wounded during the conflict. The U.S. spent some $20 billion on the war effort, equivalent to nearly $400 billion in current dollars. In the late afternoon of Sunday, November 10, 1918 an extra edition of the Hamilton Evening Journal was published. It arrived in Oxford just an hour after it was printed. With it came word that the Armistice had been signed and that the Great War was at an end. Celebrations began the next morning, coinciding with the formal cessation of the conflict, at the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.” Miami University and Oxford College cancelled classes. (There is no indication that Western College did so.) The Journal reported that “students marched through the streets with flags, tin pans and every sort of noise producing paraphernalia.” Flags were displayed throughout the town. The afternoon parade was more organized, leading from the public school at West Spring Street to High Street and the west park. It included a drum corps, the G.A.R. (Great American Revolution) Home Guards, Red Cross Women’s Relief Corps, Miami University band, U.S. Army officers, Miami University battalions, including the S.A.T.C. (Student Army Training Corps), with children from the public school

and the William Holmes McGuffey school, together with scores of automobiles, many decorated with flags and streamers, snaking along behind. Frank R. Snyder, Oxford’s leading photographer, was on hand that day, and took photographs of the two processions from his top floor studio in the Mansion House at the corner of High and Main Streets. (Today the original building is gone, twice replaced by commercial eateries, most recently Chipotle.) In the featured image, Snyder captures the dramatic scene of more than two dozen women proudly carrying an oversized American flag along High Street. It is an evocative reminder of the price Americans paid for their participation in the European conflict. We look forward to seeing you this Spring!

The Miami University Art Museum, completed in 1978, was designed by Walter Netsch of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Chicago, and is situated on three acres of scenic sculpture park grounds. It houses five galleries of changing exhibitions and a growing permanent collection of more than 17,000 artworks. MUAM is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) and is a proud member of the North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM).

Where is the Art Museum on Campus? For starters, you can’t miss the large, industrial red sculpture on the front lawn. MUAM is also just an 8-minute walk from the Armstrong Student Center, diagonally across from Tappan Hall, at the intersection of S. Patterson Ave. and Chestnut St., right when you enter Oxford off of State Route 27.

What can the Art Museum do for Students? Lots of things! MUAM is a great place to see diverse exhibitions and study outstanding works of art. You also can work, intern, volunteer, join the Art Museum Student Organization (AMSO) and attend lectures and social events.

What can the Art Museum do for the Public? The Art Museum and Sculpture Park is FREE & OPEN to ALL and is an excellent venue for exploring arts and culture from around the world. Membership in support of programs and exhibitions is available at varying levels. Each offers a higher level of engagement with the museum via special-invitation-only events and special programs.

FROM THE COLLECTION LAURA STEWART, COLLECTIONS MANAGER/REGISTRAR

In Spring of 2015, Cincinnati conservator Michael Ruzga worked on Blue Spell by Hans Hofmann. The painting needed to be cleaned as well as conserved. Ruzga spent approximately 60 hours with the painting, bringing it back to its current vibrancy. Many of the Art Museum’s members were able to meet Ruzga at the annual members’ meeting that year. Questions they asked included practical information for personal collections as well as information about Hofmann’s materials and technique. This March, Ruzga will be back on the Oxford campus to clean a 16th century Italian oil on panel painting attributed to Francesco Bissolo. The image is a classic Renaissance rendering of the Madonna and Child. With the help of chemistry professor Dr. Andre Sommer, Ruzga will be researching information about the layers of paint, among other things, before he embarks on the cleaning program.

Garnai Poised for the Field... PEOPLE OF MUAM SHERRI KRAZL, MARKETING/ COMMUNICATIONS

A senior Art & Architecture History major with minors in Arts Management and Museums & Society, Bridget Garnai has been an actively engaged member of the Miami University Art Museum since day one of her Miami career. Discovering her affinity for art and history during her high school years, she took a college course to see if it was something she wanted to major in and decided, yes. “I have always loved going to museums with my family—something that we did a lot. I really liked learning about the artists and how the artwork relates to history,” she shared. A lengthy chat with Art History professor emeritus Dr. Ann Wicks on Arts Day helped her decide on Miami (her Mom’s alma mater). “She spent a lot of time with us and I could tell she really cared about the program and the students.” Bridget was excited about all of the faculty that she met and also that Miami had its own Art Museum. Her first interaction with the Art Museum was at the lawn party, one of the museum’s signature fall events welcoming students to campus and celebrating the new exhibitions. She heard of the lawn party at MegaFair where she signed up to join the Art Museum Student Organization (AMSO) which she has led as president for the last two years. She also has completed several internships at the Art Museum. Through these experiences she has been able to work with the staff in all areas. Currently, she is completing a year-long Arts Management internship and is managing the student blog [blogs.MiamiOH.edu/art-museum]. During the fall, she was part of the Art History Capstone class that put together Advance/Retreat: Prints and the Great War. This past summer she also interned at the Cincinnati Art Museum. As for next steps after graduation—knowing that she wants to work in a museum—she has been applying to museum studies graduate programs.

Volume 5, Issue 2 | Spring 2017

vaam_spring2017-bu.indd 7

Bridget is passionate about her work and has great things to say about the role the Art Museum has played in her studies, “The Miami University Art Museum is an important part of campus. The museum really enriches the things that I learn about in my classes. It is an important space to think about and do different things. I even like how the building looks so different than the rest of campus. That really sets the stage for different things to happen—space to be creative and have new and unique experiences that can’t happen in other places.” Preparing to graduate in the spring, her advice for other Miami students is to, “take advantage of every lecture (especially at the Art Museum), that is one of the most rewarding things to attend on campus. I think I could count the one’s that I have missed on one hand.” She especially enjoys meeting and hearing from the artists who have presented over the years. Her most inspiring advice is this, “Don’t be afraid to be a nerd about stuff that you love.”

Docents & Miami Students EDUCATION AT MUAM CYNTHIA COLLINS, CURATOR OF EDUCATION

Approximately one-hundred and twenty Miami students enrolled in Western Studies 122 Art Across the Curriculum were challenged to select a “great work of artistic expression,” from genres including photography, sculpture, painting and contemporary art. Docents, volunteer tour guides, who typically engage elementary school and community groups, found themselves in the company of undergraduate students, composed primarily of first-years and sophomores. Docents eagerly provided students with an introduction to each gallery, sharing nuances about the exhibitions that weren’t readily apparent to the naked eye. For instance, in the Winter in Jeju-do exhibition the photograph titled View from Sandbanga Temple Grotto at Sunset (2012), a centuries old tree was cut

vaam_spring2017-bu.indd 8

down due to a massive pine disease outbreak. The photograph serves as evidence of the tree’s existence. The students were required to write brief responses following their museum visit answering the question as to “why the art or artifact qualifies as artwork?” This experience offered docents additional opportunities to share their knowledge with students and to aid students’ ability to engage with visual art. The art museum is recruiting volunteers who have an interest in art. No previous experience is necessary to become a docent—a love of art, enthusiasm and an interest in working with all age groups are the characteristics we’re looking for in volunteers. For more information about becoming a volunteer, please contact Cynthia Collins, Curator of Education, at collinc5@miamioh.edu or call (513) 529-2243.

Interactions DOCENT FEATURE SHERRI KRAZL, MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS

A docent since 2001, Linda Williams always has enjoyed visiting art museums, being an active member of the community and learning new things. Born in Chicago, but raised in Columbus, she and her husband of nearly 50 years, Jack, are both graduates of the Ohio State University. She feels the secret to their success is to be part of a caring family— something that means a lot to both of them. Jack’s work allowed their family to live all over the place, including Washington D.C., California, Atlanta (where their two daughters Melissa and Michelle were raised), Germany, St. Louis and New York, before settling here in Oxford in 2000. Highlights of Linda’s many residences include being a docent at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art and a year-long Art History class in New York. The course included an intense week-long residency program in a Vanderbilt mansion where the participants attended museums, programs and discussed their experiences. In addition to her Art Museum activities, Linda also volunteers for the McGuffey Museum, the Oxford Community Art Center, and the hospital’s gift shop. She is a member of the Audubon Society, the Oxford Garden Club, the League of Women Voters and the Current Events Club. She loves the outdoors and stays very active birding and gardening as well as swimming, biking and yoga. Specific to her experiences at the Art Museum, she loves to learn and to interact with the people and the art, and especially loves leading children’s activities—tours, Adventures in Art and Art Explorers. “One of the best tours I gave was a group of third and fourth graders. I often have them gather around on the floor to discuss a work of art; this particular piece was a washing machine with a rope squeezed tightly around it. It was so interesting to hear those kids—they aren’t afraid to say what they are thinking!” She also enjoys doing presentations for the Institute for Learning in Retirement. “The more you learn about something—the more you can appreciate it!” Volume 5, Issue 2 | Spring 2017

vaam_spring2017-bu.indd 9

She has many favorites in the museum’s collection, but, “if there was a fire, I would run straight for Hans Hofmann’s Blue Spell to save it. It’s so colorful and large and it’s so fun to talk with people about it, to see what they think.” Not able to narrow down any one particular type of art that she likes most, she learned some types of art that initially weren’t her favorites but grew on her, either through learning about them by doing her own research or by taking classes. Her message to others who may not know about the Art Museum is, “You MUST go because we are so fortunate to have it… the exhibitions change every semester so you should go regularly to experience new things each visit. And you will know it when you see the large red sculpture out front.” Linda is a cancer survivor and believes to enjoy life you should be sure to have an “ahhh” experience each and every day. “See something beautiful every day - whether it’s a sunset or a child playing, or art in a museum.”

Hatched Baby~New Year TRENDING NOW BRIDGET GARNAI, ARTS MANAGEMENT INTERN

The Miami University Art Museum is welcoming 2017 with the arrival of a new piece of artwork in the Sculpture Park, a temporary loan from German artist Wolfgang Auer. His piece, titled Hatched Baby, is quite fitting for the 9-foot tall royal blue infant poking its head out of a cracked white egg. Read more about Auer’s art on the Art Museum student blog (blogs.MiamiOh.edu/art-museum). Be on the lookout for our newest addition to arrive on a new pad near the front entrance of the museum in January. One of the museum’s New Year’s Resolutions is to share more sculpture in the Art Museum Sculpture Park. The museum is developing a rotating sculpture initiative in partnership with City of Sculpture, the Fitton Center for Creative Arts, and Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park, so new pieces can be shared with Miami University’s campus and the Oxford community through periodic rotations of artwork. Hatched Baby made quite a stir during its time at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts in Hamilton, Ohio, from October 2015 to September 2016. Visitors to the Fitton Center enjoyed taking selfies and photos with Auer’s fiberglass and resin sculpture, and visitors to the MUAM Sculpture Park are welcome to do the same, using #BlueBabyMiamiOH when sharing pictures with Hatched Baby on social media. I encourage you to make it your New Year’s Resolution to engage with the arts at Miami! Visit the Art Museum to see Hatched Baby and the rest of the exciting artwork on display. Enjoy an entertaining theatre production, dance performance, or concert. View an exhibition of innovative student artwork at MUAM or in Hiestand Galleries. The opportunities are endless to connect with the amazing art in our own backyard!

U.S. JOINS GREAT WAR BY JASON E. SHAIMAN, CURATOR OF EXHIBITIONS

The Spring 2017 slate of exhibitions are a unified exploration of themes surrounding the centennial anniversary of the U.S. entry into the Great War. Visitors are first presented with a study of art from around the time of the Great War with the Art History Capstone exhibition, Advance/Retreat: Prints and the Great War. Moving forward, Over Here! Over Here! delves into the U.S. Government’s multifaceted propaganda machine that used the arts to support American engagement in the war. Finally, Conflict & Resolution: A Student Response, not restricted to World War I, offers a look at original artworks by current Miami University students reflecting on what it means to be at war and the quest for peace.

are the essence of Advance/Retreat. In addition, the exhibition explores the role artists played in producing prints, which could be produced en masse to larger audiences with similar viewpoints about the Great War. The Art History Capstone Exhibition series, developed as a collaboration between the Art Museum and the Art & Architecture History program at Miami University, continues to serve as an incredible resource for students and patrons. Under the guidance of Professor Pepper Stetler (Art History) and Art Museum staff, senior Art & Architecture History Capstone students spent the Fall 2016 semester curating this exhibition of prints from the Art Museum’s permanent collection. The Capstone offered students a crash-course in museology, including instruction in curatorial, collections, education and marketing practices by the art museum staff. Pictured below front to back, left to right: Kate Hanley, Allison Dykes, Bridget Garnai, Rebecca Hughes, Raechel Root, Aaron Brown-Ewing and Joshua Perry.

exhibition are prints. This is quite appropriate considering that the vast majority of artworks produced for propaganda purposes during the Great War were in fact prints. Today’s students embark on innovative approaches to art making that blend traditional methods with modern technology. For example, printmaking processes are aided by computer software and lasercutting machines to carve designs into woodblocks, which are then printed. Digital photography has largely replaced film, while technological advancements in printing are now turning computer generated images into carved three-dimensional objects. For the first time, cash awards will be offered to the three best works in the exhibition. The selection of the winners will be cast by electronic votes from visitors to the exhibition. This special recognition of creativity is sponsored by the Miami University Art Museum Membership Association. Congratulations to the student artists whose works are featured in this exhibition: Amanda Adams, Patti Ann Cossel, Hannah Edmonds, Joshua Gabbard, Emma Leising, Alisha Mason, Mackenzie Mettey, Rebekah Mohn, GM Akand Sabik, Billy Simms, Claudia Tommasi, Caroline Ward B4

Whether I am addressing personal issues or capturing shared beliefs about the world, I am fueled by a desire to find order and meaning. Although the narrative of each work varies, the culmination of my work gives physical form to the realm of the mind. [gabiroach.com]

APR 11–16 MEGAN ALYCE TAYLOR My work stems from reactions to both the beauty and brutality of human experience. The constant application and excavation of material across the canvas is an indication of time and loss; physical evidence of the experiential wounds the canvas has collected. These experiences leave a stain, a residue; just beneath the surface, just below the skin. [meganalycetaylor.com]

The settings are reachable only in our imaginations, or the Internet – supernatural spaces, many of which have been completely altered either by material objects within them or by far-away activity. The artist wishes to thank The Arctic Circle Residency, the Jerome Foundation, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and the William and Dorothy Yeck Family Foundation for supporting the process of creating this show.

The Residency Program integrates Miami coursework with community engagement and active citizenship, offering a substantial way for students to build relationships and trust with the Over-the-Rhine (Cincinnati) community. The program thereby resists the notion that communities are mere laboratories for learning on the part of students and teachers. This is because students don’t just study a neighborhood, they actually become part of it. As a result, students are transformed in powerful and long-lasting ways.

MAR 6–24 UTOPIA REMAINS

MAR 27–APR 8 WELCOME TO LOHI

For the first half of the nineteenth century, Ohio was a hotbed of utopian activity, both secular and religious. Ohio was the frontier, and there were some very serious reactions to industrialization, persecution, and general awakenings (great and otherwise) at play. This exhibition of photographs represent a search for the residual effect of these communal experiments.

Welcome to LoHi, a place where Low Energy and High Performance go hand-in-hand to create sustainable living communities. This exhibit showcases Miami University student designs for energy-positive, regenerative buildings that boldly aim to lower carbon emissions by creating more renewable energy annually than they consume. Projects are from the graduate architecture comprehensive studio and an interdisciplinary design team of students in architecture + interior design, experience design, mechanical + manufacturing engineering, electrical + computer engineering, business, and sustainability.

While intentional communities still exist, “utopia” is more of a thought exercise than a reality, a way to expose what lacks, and a way to play with what is possible. That many of these utopian communities failed is informative, that they existed at all is substantial. Utopian thought can go wrong, we know, but it does not mean that the very human impulse towards creating something a bit better, be ignored. Roll, then, on.

Now I am trying to reverse that process, by taking cast-off objects and making them into beautiful things. I work on commission, using locally found objects and materials to create one-of-akind pieces that will live on for generations. [zekeleonard.com]

Her collaborative work is in the collection of the High Museum in (Atlanta) and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Georgia, where she chairs the Photography and Graphic Design areas.

Emily Momohara creates photographs and videos that act as metaphoric heirlooms and physical constructions of legacy. She will discuss her work as a crosspollination of Japanese and American culture and her creative process including research, experimentation and inspiration. Momohara received a 2011 Ohio Arts Council excellence grant. In 2016, her work was included in the Chongqing Photography and Video Biennial. She is Associate Professor of Art at the Art Academy of Cincinnati where she heads the photography major.

APR 6 JESSE RING, STRANGELY FAMILIAR

APR 20 CHRISTIAN SCHMIT, MYSTERIES OF THE MUNDANE

Visiting Professor at the University of Cincinnati, Jesse Ring uses interdisciplinary sculpture practice to approach material as image, and meaning, by transmuting it into representational form. His finished sculptures are composed as scene, still life or collection; intended to present a narrative structure through material, image and space.

Christian Schmit’s work questions if the miniature can express profundity and if unremarkable objects can hold great mystery. Out of found materials, he builds tableaus, dioramas and theatrical models that hopefully are possessed of condensed and complex meaning. His work was recently shown at the Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Gallery. [christiandschmit.com]

Hodgin Work Donated MCGUFFEY MOMENTS STEVE GORDON, ADMINISTRATOR MARSTON DEAN HODGIN, MIAMI UNIVERSITY, AND LANDSCAPE ARTS

Oxford and the Miami University campus are rich in imagery. A seminal figure in capturing the area’s iconic images was the landscape artist Marston Dean Hodgin (19032003). Along with Edwin Fulwider, a Miami colleague and fellow artist, they painted familiar buildings and scenes in the region for nearly 40 years. Together, they left an impressive body of mid-20th century work. Hodgin’s artistic career spanned seven decades. Born in Cambridge, Ohio, Hodgin, a Quaker, graduated from Earlham College. One of his first art exhibitions was in Provincetown, MA, where Hodgin studied and attended classes. In 1927, Hodgin was appointed artistin-residence at Miami; later he established the Department of Art through the support of a Carnegie grant. For Hodgin, “art represented a harmonious interpretation of the physical and spiritual phenomena.” He followed this approach while teaching art history, drawing and painting at Miami. Following retirement from Miami in 1963, Hodgin and his wife Lucy resided in N. Truro, MA. There he attained considerable notoriety for his watercolors of Lower Cape Cod.

ABOUT THE PAINTING

According to Molly Lampert, the work may depict Hueston Woods. It is signed on the back, “Marston Hodgin 1937.” Cal Conrad, a longtime Oxford resident, believes the view may be looking east across the valley where the Maple Sugar shack is located today. Most likely, the scene was painted in late winter 1937 (February-March) or early winter 1937-1938 (Nov-Dec). January 1937 was unusually mild with no snow but instead brought nearly 15 inches of rain to the region. What resulted was the Ohio River Flood of 1937. Molly Ann Shera Lampert is descended from one of Oxford Township’s pioneer families. Since Molly’s childhood, the painting has been owned by the family. The Hodgins and Sheras were close friends, and their children grew up together, attending McGuffey School. Molly and Tony Hodgin, Marston’s son, graduated together in the last class to attend McGuffey High School. For Molly, the painting evokes beautiful memories of a remote entrance to Hueston Woods, at a specific moment in time. The melting snow suggests the finishing of something.

experience. Molly says, “Sometimes when I looked at the painting, I felt like I was the only person who ever saw that secret entrance to Hueston Woods. Perhaps I was on a Girl Scout hike, or perhaps, as a young adult, I had driven to the woods to work on a problem. The painting hung in our living room, and was an organic part of our family life. It was shrouded in cigar and cigarette smoke at times, or brightened with laughter. To me, the painting is an echo of Oxford and Hueston Woods in a simpler time...a time of family life in the Mile Square and on the Miami campus. I hope the people who enjoy this painting can get a small snapshot of life in Oxford Township, which was a place where nature was right down the road, and one could work out one’s small journeys in peace and beauty.”

But the path which leads the eye to a beautiful blue hillside elicits hope and expectation for a good
