Untitled

An installation by Jim Waters
Zuckerman Museum of Art | Staircase
June 18 - July 30, 2017

Jim Waters' artwork explores perception through light and color. Materials such as glitter, resin and holographic vinyl amplify the symbolic potential of the form. The materials and patterns activate the wall and environment they inhabit.


Maria Artemis Selects Ruth Zuckerman

Zuckerman Museum of Art | Ruth V. Zuckerman Pavilion

August 22, 2015 - May 21, 2017

In this exhibition, Atlanta-based artist Maria Artemis presents a selection of abstract sculptures by Ruth Zuckerman. These sculptures, created from a variety of materials, are juxtaposed with some of Zuckerman's photographs to explore what may have informed her artistic choices and aesthetic. A visual conversation between Artemis and Zuckerman is conducted by the positioning of one of Artemis' own sculptures alongside a set of Ruth Zuckerman's stone working tools, acquired by Artemis from the Bureau of Cultural Affairs Materials for the Arts.  The Zuckerman artworks presented in Maria Artemis Selects Ruth Zuckerman are courtesy of the KSU Permanent Collection.


Marking Time

Permanent Installation

Atlanta-based artist Beth Lilly presents a contemporary cairn to visually track and mark the history of the Zuckerman Museum of Art. Although the word “cairn” comes from the Celtic languages, the idea of piling stones as a monument is pan-cultural and its origins are prehistoric. In treeless uplands around the world, it has been traditional to build stone cairns along a route to mark the way. Each traveler added rocks as they passed so that over time, the cairn became more visible and thus, a better landmark. Marking Time will memorialize the collaborations between artists, the institution, and the public through a collection of stones and other objects.
