Library Exhibit Features Student, Faculty and Community Art

The King Is Back

The Creative Process: Visions and Revisions, is a crowd-sourced mixed-media exhibit that invites University of West Georgia faculty, students, and the local Carrollton community to have a public conversation about their personal inspirations. Manuscripts and visual art will be on display in the Thomas B. Murphy Reading Room from January 27, 2017 through May 12, 2017.

Taking its inspiration from the acclaimed 20th century poet, critic, and editor, T.S. Eliot's (1888-1965) long form poem The Waste Land (1922), the culmination of many drafts and significant editorial changes, The Creative Process explores the various ways prototypes, sketches, mock-ups, drafts, and maquettes demonstrate artistic progression. Featured works reveal how feedback influences creative drafts and guides revision efforts.

Visitors will also be able to see how the preferred subject, style and medium express the artist’s vision. The exhibition is curated by Shaneé Yvette Murrain, University Archivist, Special Collections. Due to space limitations, only a selection of student, faculty and community works are displayed.Contributors to the exhibit include: members of the student organization, Art Student Union, students in the collaborative Fall 2016 Relief Printing Making and Creative Writing classes, members of the Carrollton Writers Guild, and UWG professors, Greg Fraser, Margaret Mitchell, Chad Davidson, and Randy Hendricks
