KOKOMO, Ind. — Indiana University Kokomo celebrated a remarkable year of creativity and research for its faculty, with a faculty art exhibition and research open house.
Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke congratulated the 47 faculty who published books or articles in scholarly journals, or who exhibited artwork, in the last year. The reception was part of the events leading up to her installation this Friday as IU Kokomo’s seventh chancellor.
“This has been an outstanding time of creativity on our campus,” she said. “I am impressed to have 47 faculty members publish or exhibit more than 100 creative works and publications. Your work helps bolster the research culture on our campus, and our students, many of whom participate in your research, benefit from it.”
Topics of research ranged from microbiology to Latino political mobilization; from urban planning to student research in introductory psychology; from Spanish soccer to human migration; from college students’ choices among electronic and print textbooks to creating a library marketing campaign.
In the gallery, seven faculty members displayed paintings, video, photography, sculpture, jewelry, and other works, as part of the faculty art exhibition. The show continues through October 18 in the IU Kokomo Art Gallery, in Upper Alumni Hall.
Admission and parking are free. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
