Chapel Hill, NC—Eureka: the moment of inspiration, innovation, peripety, shift. In the graduate art studio, this moment unites exhilaration and fear. The Aha! moment may come from experiments with new materials, techniques, or narratives, or from reimagining and reassessing what, why, and how things are made. Letting go of the familiar is frightening—but when we do it, we make space for reinvention and flux. Eureka! will exhibit works by two dozen of UNC’s MFA in Art alumni, showcasing their graduate school turning points alongside their current work.
