Every couple of years, the IU Art Museum hosts an exhibition devoted to recent work by faculty members at the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts — a show that’s often just as exciting for those participating as it is for those viewing it, according to associate professor of ceramics Malcolm Mobutu Smith.

“People assume that, because we all work together, we all know what each other is doing,” he said. “But we’re generally in our studios, so this is a great way for us to see what everybody else is doing in their work. It’s gratifying to receive the recognition from the university, and it fosters collaboration between faculty members. Plus, part of our curriculum is that our students be very aware of an artist’s professional life. This way, we can discuss how we chose which work to show, how we edit, the whole process. It becomes a critical teaching moment as well.”

The show opens at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24, with a reception in the Thomas T. Solley Atrium in the IU Art Museum, and is on display through March 9 in the Special Exhibitions Gallery and the Judi and Milt Stewart Hexagon Gallery. The School of Fine Arts is part of the College of Arts and Sciences.
