Schnormeier Gallery, located on the first floor of MVNU’s Buchwald Center, features two large, open spaces that are fully equipped with adjustable spotlighting and plenty of room for gallery shows and installations. Senior Art and Graphic Design students use this professional-level space for their senior shows. The Schnormeier Gallery frequently exhibits the work of local, national and international artists.
This exhibition is the product of a gathering of North American art professors with their Chinese counterparts in June 2018 in China sponsored by the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity. Visiting artists’ enclaves and cultural sites in Beijing, Nanjing, and Shanghai, they considered issues of art, contemporary society, spirituality, and their role as culture makers, critics and seers. The works in this exhibition represent this encounter, its conversations and what was summoned by the artists’ interactions—with China, with the art scene there, and with each other.
