The CU Art Museum at the University of Colorado Boulder opens the largest faculty exhibition to date on Friday, Jan. 21, at 10 a.m.

The exhibition will feature the work of 22 faculty artists from the department of art and art history and will be displayed through several galleries in the museum's state-of-the-art facilities in the CU-Boulder Visual Arts Complex.

Works will be presented in an array of media, including video and sound installation, painting, photography, ceramics, digital arts, printmaking, sculpture, and mixed-media/site-specific installation.

"This exhibition allows the campus and broader community an opportunity to experience and enjoy the dynamic artistic accomplishments of a faculty that comprises one of the largest art programs in the West," said Lisa Tamiris Becker, director of the CU Art Museum. "It highlights the breadth and range of conceptual and aesthetic approaches practiced in our art and art history department."

The exhibition also marks the return of a valued tradition on campus. The last major faculty show was held in 2007.

Located in the cultural heart of the campus, the CU Art Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays until 7 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. Parking is available in the nearby Euclid Avenue parking garage.
