In these collaborative projects, the Fitton Center highlights art made in our classes and outreach programs, and also partners with local schools, universities, artist networks, retirement villages, community centers and other organizations to celebrate the talented artists in our area.

Equality As We See It
Art Central Foundation
July 21 – August 20, 2021
As a part of last year's Summer Art Workshop Student Exhibition, each class created a piece expressing their feelings about the subject of Equality. The result was a powerful group of youth work, which resulted in plans for this adult show on the same subject. Covid-19 has challenged our connection to community and we wanted to offer all artists a voice to speak to how they see equality, an issue that is currently being debated as close as our neighborhoods and far as the Supreme Court.

Miami University Regionals
Curated by Jennifer Purdum
Every year, Miami University Regionals art students create a large-scale charcoal drawing dealing with the concept of identity and portraiture. Over the years, students have dealt with the issue of identity through myth, nature, and through the lens of digital technologies. This exhibition celebrates some of the best examples produced over the last 5 years. Drawings on view were created primarily using charcoal with watercolor and additional mixed media.
