M.F.A. Exhibition ‘Creativity Driven by Southern Hospitality’ Opens April 9


The College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Art and Art History will present a Master of Fine Arts exhibition by Sean Smith beginning Saturday, April 9. Focusing on stimulating all five senses, Creativity Driven by Southern Hospitality is Smith’s attempt to create Gesamtkunstwerk (Total Art). Smith agrees with a Richard Wagner essay titled “The Artwork of the Future,” in which he mentions the combination of the arts through theater. He describes that this is the clearest and most profound way to present folklore or cultural identity. By exploring the creative process through performance, functional sculptures, contemporary abstract paintings, and postmodern ideas about art and its possibilities, Smith will entice and invite the viewer not only to enjoy his work as a spectator but also to participate in multiple creations displayed during his hospitable artistic happening. Creativity Driven by Southern Hospitality will be on view from April 9 to May 1 at UM’s Wynwood Project Space, 2200A NW 2nd Avenue, Miami. An opening reception for the artist will be held Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m. A group painting will begin at 7 p.m.

For more information aboutthe artist, visit www.seansmithart.com. A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art. For more information about the exhibition or Wynwood Project Space, call 305-284-2543 or email [email protected].
