In Motion

  • Dec 12, 2015 – Feb 28, 2016
  • Gallery 6
John Steuart Curry, “The Missed Leap”, c. 1934, lithograph on paper,
21 1/2 x 13 5/8 in. Museum purchase, 1975.

The concept for this exhibition was inspired by the innovative collaborative work being done by the Weatherspoon’s educational staff and faculty in UNCG’s Department of Kinesiology. The artworks on display depict a variety of implied movement—be it physical, psychological, or optical—and range from agitated to humorous, and from languid to unruly. Regardless of how motion is denoted, the images will rouse the visitor’s imagination with possible scenarios of what happened just before and after these motions and moments occurred. 

The exhibition is organized by Elaine D. Gustafson, Curator of Collections.
