“CONTEMPORARY ART PURCHASING PROGRAM: SELECTIONS 2010-2011”

NEW EXHIBITION FEATURING RECENT ACQUISITIONS BY THE STUDENT UNION STAMP GALLERY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND COLLEGE PARK  

August 29, 2011 to October 15, 2011 
the Stamp Gallery will host its biannual exhibition showcasing the Stamp’s most recent acquisitions made possible by the Stamp’s notable Contemporary Art Purchasing Program.  

Opening reception on September 8, 2011 from 5:00PM-8:00PM.   
Featured artists include Jeff Brouws, Patrick Jacobs, Luke Jerram, Sarah Anne Johnson, Doug Keyes, Jae Ko, and Jenny Morgan.
 
In the spring of 2009, five gifted students were selected to be part of a committee that was taught the intricacies of contemporary art through a series of workshops with gallery staff and art professionals. The goal of this student committee was to add exciting and challenging works to the Stamp’s growing permanent contemporary art collection. Each and every acquisition was thoughtfully selected solely by the student committee after group excursions to New York City and Washington D.C, where they visited multiple galleries and artists’ studios.

The Stamp Gallery is located on the first floor of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union-Center for Campus Life, at the University of Maryland, College Park.  The gallery is free and open to the public Mondays-Thursdays 10:00AM-8:00PM; Fridays 10:00AM-6:00PM; and Saturdays 11:00AM-5:00PM.
