A MiraCosta Curatorial Collective
The Kruglak Gallery at MiraCosta is honored to present the
"Facial Expressions" exhibition which showcases works from
the private collection of the Miller family. From cultures
across the globe, depiction of the face seems to be a universal
thread throughout arts’ varied themes. The exhibit invites
visitors to contemplate the meaning and magnitude of The
Face, presenting dolls, masks, textiles, and figurines created by
people for people. Valued by both the artists and collectors,
these objects often serve as tangible connections to
indigenous cultures. This also allows for locals to choose
which stories they find appropriate to share with outsiders,
and how they would like to be represented
This exhibit has been designed, curated, and installed by MiraCosta's Museum Studies students, working with a selection of objects belonging to Professor Lynne Miller's family. These items reflect many cultures' different approaches to depicting the face in art.
Facial Expressions will run during Finals Week, from May 22nd to May 25th, with an opening reception on Monday, May 22nd from 12 pm - 2 pm.
This course introduces students to the practical requirements of operating a museum or gallery. It provides detailed information about museum and gallery departments and roles as well as hands-on practice planning, designing, installing, and publicizing exhibitions.
