Contemporary Modes of Expression

March 09 to March 31, 1987

Marsh Art Gallery


The Tucker-Boatwright Festival is an annual celebration of the arts at the University of Richmond, which features literature, theater arts, music and dance, art and film in a four-year cycle.

It is with pleasure that the Art Department presents the 1987 Tucker-Boatwright Festival. The purpose of this year's festival is to emphasize the diversity and vitality of art being made today by presenting to the students and the community a series of events entitled "Contemporary Modes of Expression." Included are lectures by noted art critic Donal Kuspit and by telecommunications artist Bruce Breland; an invitational exhibition of work by Virginia and Washington, D.C., artists; a tri-city digital art exchange by Breland and collaborators; Video Transformations, a traveling exhibition organized by ICI, New York; a performance in mixed musical idioms by Claudia Stevens, and a panel discussion involving artists and critics who will focus on the festival's theme and events.

Special thanks go to Donald Kusput and Bruce Breland for their participation and enthusiasm, Roger de la Burde for his generosity, Carol Rand for her essay, and to Sheldon Wettack for his continued support.
