Solving Problems: Drake Art & Design Faculty Exhibition

Feb 1-March 8, 2024

The faculty of Drake University’s Art & Design program challenge our students on a regular basis to solve problems; to think critically, engage in process and creatively work through ideas. These acts, so fundamental to art making, are what center this year’s faculty exhibition. Taking this opportunity to question how one solves a problem and the artwork that results, or is made along the way, this show highlights process and active questioning. Sometimes a problem is the origin of an artwork, or a problem that occurs along the way becomes essential to the work, or the resulting work itself is still grappling with a problem. Showcasing both finished and unfinished work, the Art and Design faculty present a look into how they each approach solving problems through art.
