Syndicates: Andrew Witkin (among others), Museum of Art
Boston-based artist Andrew Witkin’s studio practice involves aggregating, arranging, collecting and/or fabricating everyday ideas, images and objects to investigate systems and frameworks of information and their intellectual and psychological effects in the world. Syndicates includes text-based works, graphic elements, woven fabrics and collages of newspaper photographs that collectively blur the systematic with the haphazard in which meaning is layered and elusive.

Long Eye, Museum of Art
The Museum of Art in the Paul Creative Arts Center and the University Museum in Dimond Library present collaborative exhibitions about the Arctic and Antarctica.
Long Eye features contemporary works of art created in response to the colors, shapes, sounds, and climate of both the Arctic and Antarctica. The work, most of which is time- or sound-based, stand as metaphors for the regions themselves—monumental, breathtaking, fleeting— creating impressions of places that can only truly be experienced in person. Exhibiting artists include Eric Aho, Resa Blatman, Wendy Jacobs, Andrea Juan, Anna McKee, Claudia O'Steen and Aly Ogasian.
