Franklin Curates Rituals

Rituals Postcard

The ArtReach St. Croix Mobile Art Gallery is traveling with its latest show Rituals, an exhibition conceived and curated by faculty member William G. Franklin.

Rituals is centered on thought-provoking stories of Minnesota- and Wisconsin-based artists and what their lives have been like during this past year. Accompanying the stories, the exhibit showcases objects of ritualistic significance in their lives and images of their studios. “The artists’ routines, the psychic-transformative power of objects, and the studio as a state of mind act together to create an all-embracing portrait of each artist, enshrined now under the Mobile Art Gallery,” says Franklin. “The exhibit hopes to inspire audiences to deepen their relation with themselves, their creative environments and communities.”

Featured artists include Zoe Cinel ’18, MFA, and MFA candidates Bo Young An, Susan Fink, Alondra Marisol Garza, and Jocelyn Suzuka.
