In-Site: A New Realism

September 23 through October 17, 2020

The annual BFA exhibition ​​​​​​is comprised of the culminating projects created by students graduating from WWUs year-long BFA program. The 10 artists represented in this show have created bodies of work that attempt to evoke new ways of perceiving reality. Spanning a range of media from photography, sculpture, painting,​ video, printmaking, and installation each artist seeks to restructure a site or subjective memory to incite new modes of understanding the past and the present.


The VU Gallery proudly presents our last exhibition of the year, Un/Felt: 3D Forms in Fiber featuring Seiko Purdue's ART363 students! The pieces included in this exhibition are all either textile installations or fiber sculptures; felt-making was a requirement.

Looking Up: The Skyviewing Sculptures of Isamu Noguchi

Postponed. Rescheduling in progress.

Isamu Noguchi’s Skyviewing Sculpture was created specifically for Western’s central plaza, Red Square, in 1969. It is Noguchi’s most ambitious treatment of the skyviewing theme, which was important in his art making throughout his career. 

Curated exclusively for Western Gallery by Dakin Hart, Senior Curator at The Noguchi Museum in New York, the exhibition will bring Noguchi’s sky-viewing sculptures together for the first time.
