    <ong>Exhibit recognizes artistic talent throughout the disciplines

    At a liberal arts school like Carleton College, it’s not uncommon that students choose to explore more than one discipline.  “Outside the Lines,” a new art exhibit at the college, celebrates the artwork of non-art majors.  The show will be on display in the Boliou Hall through May 1. This exhibit is free and open to the public.

    For centuries, artists have worked in many different trades and intellectual disciplines—they have spent their lives making art while also working as scientists, philosophers, and poets.  Following their example, many Carleton students pursue their artistic interests through classes and independent studies even if it is not strictly part of their course requirements.

    “Outside the Lines” highlights work done by juniors and seniors who are not art majors, but have studied art at Carleton, and who use visual language to communicate about the many worlds of which they are a part.  The exhibit was organized by Helen F. Lewis Professor of English Susan Jaret-McKinstry, who hopes it will inspire other non art majors to think “outside the lines.” The show also honors art majors and professors who have supported the non-majors and their artistic talents along the way.

    The exhibit is sponsored by Viz (Visualizing the Liberal Arts), a new initiative at Carleton funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  The Viz will enable Carleton to be a leader in developing innovative ways to address the challenges that faculty, students, and staff encounter as they work to create, interpret, and employ visual images, media and models.

    The Boliou Hall Auditorium is accessible from Highway 19 in Northfield, and is wheelchair accessible.  For more information regarding this exhibit, please contact Susan Jaret-McKinstry at [email protected].
