"The Last Ten Years: In Focus"

12:00 AM / Cole Student Activities Building, The David C. Driskell Center, Room 1214

The David C. Driskell Center

The Last Ten Years: In Focus will include highlights from the David C. Driskell Center's acquisitions for the last decade. The Driskell Center routinely exhibits a wide variety of themes and content in its shows, but it very rarely has an opportunity to show off some of the more unique and interesting items from its collections. The Last Ten Years will be an exciting opportunity for UMD and the broader community to sample the breadth and depth of the Driskell Center's art and archival holdings, which have grown by thousands of objects in the last decade. The exhibition will also display material from its archival collections.This exhibition will also serve as an opportunity for both the Driskell Center and its audience to examine questions around collecting, criticism, and legacy as they relate to art.
