The World Inside You:
Exhibition of Young Artists in Creativity Camp 2022
September 15 through May 31
The University of Minnesota's Creativity Camp Study is both scientific research and a wildly fun eight-day camp experience infused with creative exploration. The exhibit mirrors the camp’s overarching theme, focused around an invitation to travel “the world inside you.” Like exploring the ocean, exploring the self involves delving into constantly evolving depths and encountering unexpected multitudes. Curated by Jamee Yung (Weisman Art Museum,) Peng Wu (St. Cloud State University), and Yuko Taniguchi (University of Minnesota Rochester), the exhibit invites the audience to experience the discoveries made by camp participants in their interior and creative journeys.
The exhibit graphic is designed by Suyao Tian and Peng Wu, the exhibit poem written by Yuko Taniguchi.
Investing in North Minneapolis

The Investing in North Minneapolis exhibition presents community-informed student projects supporting an equitable and green North Minneapolis.

Ranging from after-school activity centers to green art streets, Investing in North Minneapolis is an exhibit of those ideas in 20+ large format sketches and architectural renderings.
Through August 3, 2021
