We are so excited to be sharing our experiences building the PQ2015 USA National and Student Exhibits! Back in July 2014, eight graduate students were selected by Paul Brunner, the Technical Director and Project Coordinator for the National Exhibit, to participate in a lifetime opportunity to build the USA National and Student Exhibit for the Prague Quadrennial 2015. We have been working hard for almost a year, and we can’t wait to show you the incredible National Exhibit designed by the renowned international designer, Klara Zieglerova, and the Student Exhibit designed by students Joe Klug, John Mitchell, Jenna Moran, Meghan Raham and Tyler Kinney.
One professor, 3 recent M.F.A. graduates, 5 M.F.A. candidates, and a Staff member trying to keep us all together, we are proud to represent Indiana University and the United States at the Prague Quadrennial!
