The Metal Building in an Expanded Field
February 1-March 1
Curated by Associate Professor Greg Snyder, the ambition of this exhibit is to suggest ways in which the metal building can participate in a broad set of architectural discourses and the set of other cultural discourses that have adjacencies to architecture and architectural education. The collection of artifacts that are on display, and their adjacencies and relative proximities, might come as a surprise or appear to be a stretching of logic that might even elude the most tortured storyteller, but they are intentional. A legacy of toys, games, and carefully considered art and design practices are a fertile ground to mine for ideas and cultural significances that can inform the metal building with rich meanings and associations.
Storrs Gallery is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
