In conjunction with a year focused on showcasing and encouraging creativity and innovation, the Miami University Art Museum is hosting two connected exhibitions this academic year.

This semester, visitors can discover “Art that Moves: The Intersection of Creativity & Innovation," an exhibition of works from the museum’s collection of more than 17,000 works as well as pieces by local artists and faculty. 

This exhibition of kinetic works explores the marriage of design and aesthetics with technology and innovative constructions popularized in the 20th century.

“Art that Moves” is an exhibition of works that move — either powered by you, electricity or optical illusion — and is open until Dec. 12. 

Opening in spring 2016 will be “Creativity & Innovation: A Student Response Exhibition." The third of its type for the art museum, this juried exhibition provides Miami students the unique opportunity of having selected works displayed in an accredited art museum. 

Entries are due by midnight Oct. 16 via the Call for Entries link. The exhibition is open to all Miami students and has no entry fee. More information about requirements and specifications can be found online.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to challenge students to #cr8something for this spring exhibition. 

Accepted works include drawings, paintings, photography, multimedia, sculpture, poetry, essay, music, prints, audio, video, Web and more.
