From the New York Public Library: "Mid-Manhattan Library presents More than a Passing Glance an exhibition of large scale color photographs by well-known photographer Jan Staller. At once recognizable and yet abstract the striking images made during 2010 - 2011 depict construction sites, scrap metal yards, parking lots, boat yards and other places ordinarily visited for their intended function and assumed not to offer much visual delight, except when they appear in Staller's photographs."

Awakening Asylum
On view through October 13, Randall's Island
MICA CONNECTION: Sean Wrenn '08 (Mount Royal)
Sean Wrenn's Awakening Asylum is designed around formal elements and conceptual themes emerging from the General Slocum Steamship disaster (June 15, 1904) and the history of Randall's Island as a place of "Asylum" for inebriates, idiots and insane urban residents. The location of the sculpture will commemorate the ship's Hell Gate waterway passage where it is thought that the steamship fire likely began. Due to faulty unregulated flotation devices and poor crew response times (for beaching quickly on Wards Island's Sunken Meadow), over 1,000 people perished in the Northern East River on their way to a Lutheran picnic excursion on the sound in Queens.


Miss Behaving: The Art of Rachel Schmidt
On view July 13, Harvest Art Gallery, 216 W 15th St., Cincinnati

Hairy Blob

On view through July 29, Hyde Park Art Center, 5020 S. Cornell Ave, Chicago
MICA CONNECTION: Becky Alprin '08 (Mount Royal)
The Hairy Blob dissects traditional concepts of time and resources through artworks in video, sculpture, drawing, installation, dance and sound. The exhibition shows how artists depict time by analyzing various built and natural environments. Rather than discussing time as memory or nostalgia, the works present time as a means to address notions of power and politics, and their impact on the use of resources.
