Anthology of Divergent Models for the Preparation
and Presentation of Student Art Exhibitions
Robert C. Dalton and William M. Zuk, Editors

This anthology will explore the role of student art exhibitions in
benefiting both creators and viewers. The emphasis given to the preparation
and presentation of art exhibitions allows student exhibitors to more fully
actualize their potential as learners. The anthology will include three
sections: Purpose and Meaning, Planning and Implementation, and Teaching
and Learning. Chapter submissions on the following topics are needed:
* Divergent models (range of exhibition types: juried, invitational,
theme-based, ethnic artists, social causes, business-sponsored, etc.); *
Global perspectives (exhibitions of student art in other countries); *
Historical perspectives (changing nature of student art, media, subject
matter); * Artist mentor programs (successful programs that bring
nationally recognized artists into schools to discuss their work and
interact with students); * Postmodernism (where art is shown, collaboration
among artists and public, increase in use of text); * Process (development
of ideas from initial plans to finished work); * Program promotion
(student exhibitions as advocacy for art education); * Selecting artwork
(choosing the best vs. representing all submissions); * Judging the work
(establishing standards to ensure that quality is high); * Portfolio
(selecting and arranging works within the portfolio for purposes such as
seeking admission to art colleges or securing employment for student
artists, collecting work as an ongoing method of evaluating artistic
growth); * Practical concerns (tips on effective display, using safe
materials, lighting, security, documenting the event, working within
budget, etc.); * Challenges and opportunities (solutions for
difficult-to-display works limited by weight, fragility, size, etc. , and
opportunities for using new technologies for preserving, shipping, and
displaying student artwork); * Venues (where and how student art is
exhibited: classroom, libraries, offices, shopping malls, banks, community
centers, etc.) ; * Students as curators (involving students in setting up
their own exhibition); * Careers (research and role playing for students to
learn about artists, curators, dealers, conservators, museum educators, and
others); * Multicultural concerns (building a climate of acceptance and
appreciation for cultural differences among students and within the
community); * Critical inquiry (using exhibitions to develop students'
critical skills in analyzing and interpreting their own artwork)
