Raspberry Monday 2020

Juried Student Virtual Exhibition
The 48th year of this Bethel tradition!

Raspberry Monday teaches skills such as self-motivation, independent presentation, and intelligent self-editing as students prepare for and participate in the exhibition. In addition, several outstanding student artworks submitted to the exhibition each year are purchased by the Department of Art and Design for the Bethel University Permanent Art Collection.

While the exhibition typically takes place in person for viewers to peruse at their own leisure, this year the photo gallery below will offer a virtual experience. The gallery will play automatically, but feel free to pause and examine the pieces at your own pace. Also, to fully capture two of the pieces, students submitted videos, which do not fit in the photo gallery. Their being separate from the gallery has nothing to do with the results of the exhibition, but with web constraints at this time. 

Numerous awards were announced on Friday, May 15, and we encourage you to witness the artists' talent and their incredible work for yourself. 

Each year, the Department of Art+Design invites a highly esteemed curator or artist from the Twin Cities arts community to serve as the Raspberry Monday juror. The exhibition provides an opportunity for students to be involved in a juried exhibition and to have their work assessed by a juror who provides a professional outside perspective on their work.

This year, it was an honor to have Keisha Williams, Curatorial Department Assistant and Artist Liaison in Contemporary Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, serve as the juror. She holds an MA in Visual Arts Management and Curating (2017) and an MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies (2015). She is the co-curator of “Mapping Black Identities” (2019-2020) and “Mapping Black Identities: 3 Films” (2019) exhibitions, curator of “Joe Horton: Vessel” (2019) and co-founder of the Curatorial Advisory Committee at Mia. She is a contributing author to the recent Routledge publication “Accessibility, Inclusion, and Diversity and Critical Event Studies” (2019).
