October 6 – November 7; The WKU Year of Ecuador Celebrates Dr. David M. Coffey
Dr. David M. Coffey was the driving force behind developing the WKU Year of Ecuador. Through art objects, personal stories and photographs, this exhibition celebrates “Doc” Coffey’s connection to Ecuador, the many students he influenced with his study abroad programs, and the way in which he developed lasting links between Ecuador and wider WKU community. Curated by Professor Kristina Arnold’s Gallery Studies class.
This competitive juried exhibition will showcase a selection of work created by students in the WKU Department of Art in the areas of Painting, Drawing, Graphic Design, Printmaking, New Media, Sculpture, Ceramics and Weaving.
Inspired by the wildly popular international 48-Hour Film Project, it involves a random drawing of five elements (prop, character, genre, location and line of dialogue) followed by two days of filmmaking. But since the event occurs over the weekend of daylight saving time, WKU's is a 49-Hour Film Challenge.
The screening of films is open to everyone – students, faculty, staff and the community at large.
