In groups of three or four and students were tasked with developing a world that they could then effect with a catastrophic event.

    Gary R. Libby Gallery presents art exhibitions that are organized by graduate student curators, in conjunction with the director of the galleries, providing an opportunity for students to learn experientially about curation, exhibition design and presentation, and visitors to view professionally presented shows that primarily feature contemporary art.
