The Useless Exhibition: Artist and curator: Chris Fox, graphic design faculty member

October 28 — December 14, Center Art Gallery, Gallery 2

Exhibition reception: Nov 14, 6 – 9 p.m. Refreshments served, all are welcome.

The Useless Exhibition is a collection and review meant for people to consider why we commodify objects, how we affectionately and emotionally covet those items, and how we ultimately move on from them once they're no longer physically, emotionally, or materialistically important. Fourteen invited artists contributed a total of 1100 items for this exhibition with a corresponding manifest listing the objects and the reason these items are still in their possession. Reasons vary from sentimental, to practical, and even symbolic.

The objects may have been useful, kept with the hope to use again, or perhaps kept because the contributor felt obliged to keep them. The reasons are personal and the Manifests serve as a record for each items inclusion in the exhibit. This exhibition is meant to "disperse," meaning each item on display is able to be taken by a visitor. To participate, visit the Center Art Gallery now through December 14.

The Center Art Gallery is closed Sunday. For specific hours and information, please visit the Center Art Gallery site
