Exhibit: REVIVAL – "Midway explores the fusion of disparate relationships that
occur in the chaotic environment of a carnival. Perhaps the most obvious
of these is between the average carnival visitor, who experiences the
sights, sounds and smells of the fair as an outsider, and the carnival
workers (or carnies), who operate on the inside of that world" -- Katie Adkins. Artist Talk will take place at 6 pm, at a 5-7pm reception on Friday, November 1.
There's a long association between Arts and Sciences. Each asks its practitioners to engage a subject and understand it in new ways, to see beyond simple surface reality, to create what doesn't yet exist. The School of Mines honors the arts and sciences
partnership with the Apex Gallery.
The gallery was established in 1989 and is housed in the Classroom Building (see
campus map). It is open to the public and offers educational Arts and Science exhibitions for the enjoyment and enrichment of people of all ages.
The gallery features contemporary works of artists and scientists, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognized. These exhibits are designed to reflect a cross section of cultural expressions and perspectives.
In addition to providing on-campus students and staff with opportunities to view the exhibits, the Apex Gallery offers tours to local middle-schools, features lectures from visiting artists, provides campus and community workshops and conducts collaborative
programming and exhibitions with Rapid City's Dahl Fine-Arts Center.
