Returning this semester, now taking place during Fall, is the Student Response Exhibition (SRE). Open to all Miami University students, of any year, major/minor, this eighth SRE is connecting students with the complex theme of Sovereignty. Interconnected: Land, Identity, Community is developed in collaboration with the Myaamia Center at Miami in association with the 2022-2023 FOCUS theme of Tribal Sovereignty. In Interconnected, sovereignty includes inherent and retained political rights and cultural integrity. Three key factors in maintaining Tribal Sovereignty are land, identity, and community. This theme, which was broadened for students to allow for wider contextualization, is also connected with the 50th anniversary of the relationship between the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Miami University.

In a unique collaboration, George Ironstrack and Kara Strass of the Myaamia Center partnered with Sherri Krazl, Laura Stewart and Jason Shaiman of the Miami University Art Museum to develop the context and make the selection of works. Thirty-one out of the 55 submitted pieces are featured in this exhibition. The SRE includes a fun and exciting opportunity for the participating students as they are eligible to win cash prizes sponsored by the Art Museum Members Association. Visitors to the exhibition can cast a vote for their three favorite works in the exhibition via a kiosk in the gallery. Winners will be announced at a special reception and celebration of student creativity on Wed, Nov 9, 2022, during a public awards ceremony.

Open Tue-Fri 10 AM-5 PM, Sat Noon-5 PM and every second Wednesday 10 AM-8 PM
