As part of South Bend’s sesquicentennial celebration in 2015, the South Bend Museum of Art presents an image of the current South Bend arts scene … as selected by the South Bend arts scene!
The South Bend Museum of Art selected 5 individuals who are influential within the arts community. They each selected 2 artists who they feel are making important work, and/or deserve a chance to shine. Those artists selected an additional 2 artists each. In the end, artwork by 30 artists is featured in the exhibition. The branching nature of the selection process sheds light on influences, friendships, and other complexities that help create the rich and varied arts culture of South Bend.
SBMA Curator, Mark Rospenda explains the goal of the exhibit: “To explore and celebrate South Bend’s arts scene as the city commemorates its sesquicentennial this year. And to do it unconventionally to allow for a more socially-driven and less institutionally-driven examination.”
