The university now offers 360 degree virtual tours of “Action and Reaction: Looking at the Art of Social Justice” and “40 Years of Engraving: From the Archives of Center Street Studio”.

“In many ways, the pandemic has given us an impulse to think outside the box,” said Heather Campbell, curator of museum programming.

“Action and reaction: looking at the art of social justice” features over 80 historic and modern works of art, featuring Judy Chicago, Knight’s Avel, Danny Lyon and more. A special section of the exhibition features freelance photographer and former UofR student Miles Wilson and Sandy Williams, IV, an interdisciplinary artist and part-time art instructor at UofR.

“40 years of engraving: from the archives of Center Street Studio” presents contemporary works printed by James Stroud, artist, master printer and founder and director of Center Street Studio in Milton, Massachusetts. Visitors also have access to lectures from virtual galleries and interviews with museum staff and distinguished artists.
