Gallery 51 & ExPRESS
April 28- May 22
Opening Reception: April 28th 5-7pm
A curated show by MCLA's Advanced Museum Studies Class
Taught by Professor Laura Thompson, MASS MoCA’s Director of Education and Curator of Kidspace, MCLA's Advanced Museum Studies spent the semester exploring the many ways in which objects are arranged and interpreted in museums to influence viewers' understandings of art, history, and social concerns.
Featuring the 300 sq ft. installation of a golden, elaborately woven carpet made of bullets by artist, Raúl Martínez, and interactive opportunities developed by students, Bullet Points is a means to open discussions about the complex nature of guns in BCRC's ExPRESS space on 49 Main St. North Adams MA.

MCLA's Senior Art Projects Class
This exhibition will introduce the work of six MCLA senior art majors and the artistic achievements of their 'Senior Art Project' course, the cornerstone of the MCLA art major. Taught by visiting assistant Professor of Art Josh Ostraff, this year's students focused on the idea of “conviction” – defined as a firmly held belief or opinion.
Predominately working with two-dimensional work, using a wide variety of subject matter, the students’ work connects through the conviction of their artistic practices which have grown and developed throughout the semester. Work will be on view in MCLA's Gallery 51, on 51 Main St. North Adams, MA.
