Joint Crux Opening Reception

Friday January 29th

7-11 p.m.


MINT is excited to present Joint Crux, a collection of work from students who are seniors or recently graduated from Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio State University.
Joint Crux brings together some of the best work coming from each of these educational institutions in order to bring to light a few of the young artists who are up and coming in Columbus at an exciting turning point in their careers. These artists are discussing themes from technology and futurism, to the body and traditional formal elements.
Hopefully, by showing these works together it will be possible to bring two communities into an intercollegiate conversation to encourage a crossover of ideas and experiences and foster new relationships or collaborations.
The Gallery will be open at 7 pm
Artist Talk at 9 pm
The show will be open from January 29 to February 19 by appointment
