Cup Exchange

Right now there is a show put on by five B-66 students and one professor running in the Harris Fine Arts Building.  The show is titled “Cup Exchange” and started with the work of Janna Siebert, J. Amber Egbert, Jason Palmer, Blaine Atwood, Jerel Harwood & Brian Christensen.

Each artist produced 20 drinking vessels and put them on display where the crowd is invited to bring a drinking vessel of their own and exchange it for one of the works on display, leaving behind their own cup and a hand written note explaining something about the cup they are leaving behind.

Opening night was very successful with many participants in attendance.  The show runs November 18th through December 3rd on the southern 5th floor landing and is open to the public during the buildings hours of operation.

You can see footage and images from the opening night below.
