February 1—March 24, 2018
Drawings from CU Art Museum made from the 1200s to today are featured in this exhibition, curated by a team of graduate students in CU’s museum practicum seminar. Draw Me In encourages close looking and conversation. As viewers study techniques employed by artists working in a variety of media, they are asked to engage with traditional conceptions about the art of drawing in order to come to a deeper understanding of the practice. How has drawing been defined and valued by different makers, collectors and scholars? And what is drawing today?
