JONESBORO – Bradbury Art Museum (BAM) at Arkansas State University will open two exhibitions, “Moon Shine” and “Inspired 8,” with a public reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19. Bradbury Art Museum is in Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Dr.

“Moon Shine” is an exhibition by Rachel Boillot, assistant professor of art. The series includes images inspired by musical heritage in Tennessee’s Cumberland Plateau and explores the memories of female musicians in the Appalachian region.

“Inspired” is an annual, competitive exhibition offered to regional high school students. Participants created artwork in response to what they saw during a visit to BAM. They virtually submitted their work and artist statements for consideration by a juror. Through this exhibition, participants are exposed to the work of contemporary artists as well as given an early glimpse into the process of exhibiting their own art in a professional setting.

This year, students were inspired by “People/Places/Things,” an exhibition exploring the concept of realism.

The juror for “Inspired 8” is Stephanie H. Shih, a professional artist whose work was included within “People/Places/Things.” Shih works out of Brooklyn, N.Y., and exhibits her work worldwide. From all the submissions, she selected the works included within this exhibition.

BAM will present several awards and display them on tags next to the awarded works. Included in the exhibition are 50 works by students from 10 area schools:
