Setting Up the Frost exhibition

When I joined the “Aesthetics and Values” class I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. A class where we set up an art exhibition on our own?

“Sounds neat,” I thought.

I thought at the end we would find  help would magically rain down on us by  some deus ex machina of a professor or we would have to postpone the exhibition.

We really did do everything on our own: from contacting the artists, to setting up the art pieces. Everything was as intimate as if we were curators of our own museum. It’s been one of the most unique experiences in my life.

I’ve learned teamwork through meeting classmates and dealing with new personalities. I’ve learned about artwork and how it’s evolved from cave paintings to Duchamp’s urinal. I’ve learned that some of life’s best experiences are when you step out of your comfort zone and communicate with people to learn about something you never thought you’d learn about.

If you’d like to see what the class has put together, visit the Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum Feb. 12 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
