The Arts of Creativity, Discovery & Inquiry
March 31, 2019 – July 21, 2019
This exhibition, offered as part of the University of Florida’s campus-wide, year-long celebration of invention and creativity, investigates how various artists discover and question the past, reinterpret the present, and imagine the future. With works drawn from the Harn Museum’s permanent collection, the exhibition demonstrates the inventiveness of artists over the last century, encouraging discussions and investigations centered on multiple questions, such as: What are the roles of innovation and imagination in the visual arts? How do boundaries between the arts and other disciplines and how can those borders be broken down? Where are artists going next with their creative activities?
