Through Oct. 13: Samek Invites Community to ‘Show and Tell’

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this summer, Bucknell’s Samek Art Museum is inviting anyone to contribute objects they consider to be beautiful to an exhibition. The free, public exhibition, entitled “Show & Tell,” will be on view at the Samek’s Downtown Gallery, 416 Market Street, from Tuesday, June 4 through Sunday, October 13. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday between 12 noon and 5 p.m.

Each participant is asked to share one object, anything they consider to be beautiful and include a short statement (max. 150 words) about what makes their object beautiful.

“It needn’t be art — and, in fact, I personally think it would be more interesting if it wasn’t,” said Theresa Engelbrecht, registrar and exhibition manager, Samek Art Museum.

Objects must be ready to display. Additional requirements can be found here. Note that objects are not covered by the museum’s insurance policy and while they’ll be handled with care by the Samek’s professional staff in a secure gallery, the museum is not held liable for lost or damaged items.

Please contact Engelbrecht at 570-577-3282 or tme008@bucknell.edu if you have further questions.
