Current Exhibition: Sustainability March 20-April 17

The Diane Kidd Gallery and the Green Committee of Tiffin University present “Sustainability,” an exhibition celebrating Tiffin University's recycling program and environmental concerns. The exhibit brings together 29 artists whose work questions the consequences of our consumer culture through photographs, installation, video, sculpture, painting, and mixed media. The United States generates more refuse per person than any other country. In fact, 30% of the world's garbage is produced by 5% of the world's population. In 2005, for example, 236 million tons of garbage ended up in the country's landfills, although 59% could have been composted or recycled.

There are three special events happening during this exhibit.
  • March 26 in Hayes 111 exhibiting artist Dani Herrera will give an arts workshop. Space is limited, so contact fearnsidel@tiffin.edu
  • April 4 the gallery will be open from 6-9pm, and the Art Enthusiasts will host a recycled arts workshop from 6:30-8:30pm in Hayes 111. Light refreshments will be served.
  • April 16 at 9:30pm there will be a screening of "Waste Land" a story about an artist who travels to one of the world's largest landfills to collaborate with others in transforming trash into contemporary art. Light refreshments will be served.
