A Walk Through the Juried Exhibit

If you’re an artist at Skidmore, one of the most rewarding accomplishments is to get your work featured in the Juried Student Exhibit. Out of hundreds of entries, about 70 are chosen to be in the gallery. The works feature each student’s talent and come together to create a cohesive and impressive exhibit.

On The Shelf: Remembering Forgotten Pieces

Much of the Skidmore community is familiar with the high-quality works cyclically displayed at the Tang Teaching Museum. Fewer know just how extensive the assemblage is, surpassing 14,000 objects, and only select staff can take in all the art as a whole—art that seemingly has only the title “permanent collection” in common.

How the Juried Student Exhibit Comes to Life

Each year, the Schick Gallery asks students to enter their work to be featured in the gallery for a month. Two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and even digital pieces are accepted for entry, making this opportunity one artists should not miss. Curatorial Assistant of the Schick Rebecca Shepard explained how they set up the beloved Juried Student Exhibit.

"Widows": A Different Kind of Heist Movie

Steve McQueen’s Widows opens with a passionate kiss between Veronica Rawlings (Viola Davis) and her husband Harry (Liam Neeson), before cutting to a brutal, chaotic robbery carried out by Harry and his partners. More jarring cuts show the serene domestic lives of the other partners and their wives—Linda (Michelle Rodriguez), Alice (Elizabeth Debicki), and Amanda (Carrie Coon)—as the robbers attempt to evade the authorities. This is not a heist movie about hardened, macho criminals, but rather, it’s about the now widows learning to take on those roles themselves.

Bonnets and Booze: Inside the MainStage Production
