This semester, twelve Miami students are featured in the Miami University Art Museum’s Student Response Exhibition (SRE). Works reflect the title of the exhibition, Conflict & Resolution. This exhibition complements the other two featured exhibitions pertaining to World War I.

One exhibition features prints of the period by artists “reflecting on their personal experiences in order to come to terms with the war or to provide unique commentary.” Another exhibit features WWI propaganda to mark the 100th anniversary of the U.S. declaration of war against Germany and entry into the military conflict abroad.

The student artists in the SRE explore the notion of conflict and resolution through works that depict historic and contemporary battles, peace, and immigration. It is the fourth annual Student Response Exhibition and offers originality and personal commentary from Miami students on “how war is visualized and understood, and how the resulting search for peace can be interpreted.”
