DeVos looking for student votes

The DeVos Art Museum is asking for students to vote for an art piece from a current exhibit, “Told and Retold: Stories From Chicago,” to become a part of its permanent collection. Melissa Matuscak, museum director and curator, said she welcomes student input by encouraging students to come in, look at all the art and choose their favorite piece. Voting takes place through Oct. 5, at which point the winner will be decided and through a donation from the winning artist, the piece will be added to the museum’s permanent collection. The exhibit displays the pieces of five featured artists, all from Chicago. The medium of the artists range from paintings of hand saws to a video monitor which observed one of the artists, who lives on a busy street in Chicago. The art portrays a wide variety of textures and colors; some pieces incorporate photography and comic drawings, while one displays a stuffed fox on stilts. Gallery hours run Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is free.
