We hope you’ve had a chance to visit our Graceful Gift fan exhibition, learn about the unique objects on display, and hear directly from our donor and fan collector Mona Lee Nesseth. Now, there’s even more to see when you visit our galleries: we are excited to announce the temporary installation SHAPED: Case Studies in Communication, Ventilation & Construction. In coordination with A Graceful Gift, students in FIDM's Advanced Practice in Color, Design & 3D Form class researched and created conceptual interpretations of the fan and its many functions. Each piece is accompanied by a text panel written by the student, explaining the process behind their artwork.
The gallery contains photography, 3D art objects, jewelry, and textiles, all joined together by the inspiration of the fan. We invite you to visit SHAPED, and compare these pieces to their 19th and 20th century traditional counterparts in A Graceful Gift. But hurry – both shows close July 2! Please refer to the FIDM Museum website for days and hours of operation.
