artLAB: An Exhibition Experiment


Jan 14 2011 - Mar 27 2011

During the Winter 2011 semester, the DeVos Art Museum is literally interpreting its mission statement of being a “learning laboratory” for NMU. During this time the back gallery of the museum will be divided into four smaller spaces with each “mini-space” programmed separately. Projects will include short-run exhibitions and special projects proposed and/or curated by faculty and students from the School of Art and Design.
