2014 Studio Art Senior Independent Study Group Exhibition

Sussel Gallery

The Senior Independent Study (I.S.) at The College of Wooster is a year-long project with one-on-one support and guidance by a faculty advisor. For studio art majors, the culmination of this in-depth experience is a one-person exhibition from which work is selected for this group exhibition.

Each spring, the College cancels classes to host the Senior Research Symposium, a day-long, campus-wide celebration of Independent Study. Studio art/art history majors will be present in the CWAM's Sussel Gallery from 1:00–3:00 p.m. on Friday, April 25 to discuss their projects. Please join us for this special celebration of undergraduate student research.

SHAPESHIFTING: Contemporary Masculinities

Sussel Gallery
Burton D. Morgan Gallery

SHAPESHIFTING: Contemporary Masculinities brings together emerging and established artists who question, reframe, and explore perceptions and anxieties about evolving masculinities in the 21st century. Organized in support of the political science symposium, "Research and Gender in Political Psychology," to be held October 9-11, 2014, at the College, SHAPESHIFTING is intended to raise—but not necessarily answer—questions about topics such as the relevance of the historical male role model, the purpose of fraternity, and contemporary ideas about gender construction.

Artists in the exhibition include: Hank Willis Thomas; Sara Greenberger Rafferty; Alec Soth; Kris Knight; Michael Scroggins; Robyn O'Neil; Weston Ulfig; Fall on Your Sword (Will Bates); and Brooks Dierdorff.

Spring 2015

January 18 - April 5, 2015

(The CWAM will be closed March 8-22, 2015, for the College's Spring Break.)


FREE PLAY explores the work of artists who borrow from play and games to reveal social, philosophical, and cultural issues. From playfulness to mathematical strategy, the artists in FREE PLAY mine the significance of games by reinventing them to create experiences meant to be involving to the viewer, while also reflecting on the nature of participation in art.

FREE PLAY is curated by Melissa E. Feldman, and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, NY.
