Fourth Annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show Opens May 29th
The Kinsey Institute 2009 Juried Art Show features paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, wearable art, metalwork, fiber art, and video installations by a mix of local, national, and international artists. The artworks explore themes related to sex, gender, eroticism, reproduction, sexuality, romantic relationships, and the human figure. The juror for the 2009 competition was Jennifer Cahn, an art historian who is the curator at the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art in Texas
The Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show is marking its fourth year with a change of venue. Due to the ever increasing number of submissions, a larger space was needed to allow more works to be accepted for the exhibition. Moving the show from The Kinsey Institute to the Indiana University School of Fine Arts Gallery has allowed it to expand from 80 pieces in last year's exhibition to 120 artworks in this year's show.
The SoFA Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building at 1201 E. 7th Street in Bloomington, is open noon to 4:00 Tuesday through Saturday. A public reception for the 2009 Juried Art Show will be held on Friday, May 29, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the SoFA Gallery.
In addition, The Kinsey Institute welcomes out of town visitors and others to see the Eros in Asia exhibition in The Kinsey Institute Gallery at an open house on Saturday, May 30, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.
