Museum Studies Spring 2012 Exhibition: Jamaican Art
Miami, FL 33199
Second Annual Museum Studies Exhibit: Jamaican Intuitive Art is drawn from a comprehensive group of paintings and sculptures of Jamaican Art in The Frost Art Museum's Permanent Collection, and is curated, designed and installed by students in the Graduate Certificate of Museum Studies Program. Jamaican Intuitive Art is artwork created by self-trained and non-academically trained artists. These are individuals who through their paintings, drawings, and sculptures express thoughts about life and their surroundings. This annual exhibition is part of the Introduction to Museum Ethics, Policies and Procedures course, intended to teach students about the inner workings of museums. By having firsthand experience creating an exhibition, students are introduced to a portion of the collection, for which they research the artists and art movements, and work in a team to develop the curatorial threads of the exhibition.
The Second Annual Museum Studies Exhibit: Jamaican Intuitive Art exhibition partnered with the Consulate General of Jamaica as part of the schedule of activities commemorating the nation's 50th Anniversary of Independence across the South Florida community.
