Students’ Work In Progress On Display At Rozsa Center

HOUGHTON, MI, Tuesday, March 6, 2018– The Rozsa Center and Department of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) presents the Rozsa gallery b show Come In We’re Open, an open house exhibition of the work of student sculptors’ work in progress, as a part of the “Project Learning Lab” alternative classroom project. The show opened this week, Monday, March 5, and runs until Saturday, March 10, 2018. There will be a public reception on Thursday, March 8, from 5:00 PM until 6:30 PM, and is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM and Saturday from 1:00 PM – 8:00 PM.

gallery b is part of “Project Learning Lab,” a cutting-edge Visual Arts experiment that takes place within the Rozsa gallery. Students in 3D Design and Sculpture use the Rozsa Gallery as an active and alternative classroom, transforming the space into a real-time work of art during the semester. Student work will be shown twice each semester. A mid-semester showcase will open the gallery for our community to see work in-progress; the end of semester exhibition will welcome community into a fully transformed space.  As part of Project Learning Lab, our Visual Arts Faculty are working alongside our students as Resident Art Fellows.

Also ongoing is the Rozsa Gallery A-Space exhibition Always Room for Rain, presenting the work of artists Raquel Alvizures and Ross Chaney. The public welcome to experience the progress of visiting artist-in-residence Raquel Alvizures, who is painting a mural for the Rozsa Center during the week. She is working in the Rozsa North Mezzanine, and visitors are welcome to spend time with her while she works. Several of our students from VPA are helping with the mural.

Visiting hours with Ms. Alvizures while she works are:

Tuesday 3/6 1pm – 6pm
Wednesday 3/7 1pm – 6pm
Thursday 3/8 1pm to 6pm, and
Friday 3/9 1pm – 4pm

Please feel free to drop by, or to pass this information on to those who may be interested.
