From the Editor

Happy New Year to you and yours! It is with great excitement that we bring you the latest issue of Visual Arts at Miami featuring yet another great line-up of exhibitions and programs in the visual arts at Miami University.

Inside this issue I hope you enjoy learning about our exhibitions and programs, meeting one of our many incredible docents and getting to know one of Miami’s students, and much more. Also inside this issue learn about some works by famous sculptors that can be found on the sculpture park grounds and throughout the campus and ponder with our Director the meanings and memories connected with monuments and their historical relevance.

As with each issue, we are happy to provide an at-a-glance picture of the wide range of visual arts exhibitions, programs and events at Miami University. In fact, this semester the College of Creative Arts and the Art Museum have 15 unique exhibitions on view throughout campus gallery spaces. You also can attend 18 lectures plus 14 other special events including workshops, receptions and a conference. We kick the year off with the Chocolate Meltdown  at the Oxford Community Art Center on Saturday, January 20!

I encourage you to use the schedule to plan on attending something once a week, or more. Plenty of opportunities exist—ENJOY the Visual Arts at Miami and welcome to the new year!
