Because I Say So

Sculpture from The Scholl Collection

On View:
Friday, April 17, 2009 — Wednesday, September 2, 2009


Because I Say So is an exhibition that will provoke that answer to the question, "Is that Art?"

The Museum will present sculpture and installations for which the artists have used materials ranging from the most ordinary (twigs, pins, scraps of fabric, etc.) to objects that refer to sculptural tradition, but subvert it in remarkable ways.

This is an opportunity to create the environment for a dialogue about the very nature of sculpture itself to the university community and beyond. All of the works will require the viewer to engage, experience, and reflect on the world of art today.

This show is drawn from the collection of Debra and Dennis Scholl, who have been in the forefront as collectors and supporters of emerging and established contemporary artists for many years. Their vision for the future of their artists has not only resulted in extraordinary recognition for work that was virtually unknown, but also in the compilation of a collection that is as unique as it is provocative and representative of the cutting-edge of art.
