Exhibition traces 50 years of arts practice

An exhibition opening Thursday in the SoCA Armouries Gallery brings together works by students, faculty, alumni, and staff over the 50-year history of visual arts instruction at the University of Windsor.

A free public reception will celebrate the opening of “A Line Through Time, 1967 | 2017,” at 4 p.m. March 1 in the gallery, located at 37 University Avenue East.

“The exhibition offers a view though our shared history, a line connecting past, present and future,” says Lee Rodney, professor of media art history and visual culture. “We hope this exhibition will inspire and ignite new creative directions as we grow and diversify in the 21st century.”

Current students, inspired by the school’s collection of prints produced by students dating back to the 19702, curated new works from artists, architects and media artists within the UWindsor community to showcase the evolution of intermedia and interdisciplinary practices that are emerging in the School of Creative Arts.
