"Art Education and the Human Figure" is an exhibition of artworks by MTSU art education majors that explore portraiture and the human form. Curated by Senior Art Major Kelsey Rogers the work is housed in TAG | 210, the Student Art Gallery located in room 210 of MTSU's Todd Hall adjacent to the Department of Art's Todd Art Gallery.

Rogers fellow exhibitors include: Erin Porter, Gina Wills, Katie Scoggins, Leanne Hannington, Lindsey Shannon, Madison Land, and Monica Provence. When asked the motivation behind the exhibit Rogers stated that, "Incorporating the human form into students' art class experience is vital, and it requires intensive study and exploration on any art educator's part. ...The selected works in this exhibition demonstrate a varied range of themes and approaches to the human form, from simple portraiture to anthropomorphized troll figures.

This work focuses on the contemporary challenges and perceptions of identity. The social landscape now exists in both a physical and digital version, challenging each person with new form of identity. Who are you - Are you a person or a brand? Are you the audience or an icon? Self-identity has always been important, but in the world of the "selfie" and the "profile" the question remains, who are you? Identity: Who Are You is curated by Senior Mass Communications Major Matt Masters.

TAG | 210 is a project of the Department of Art that elevates faculty-recommended students to positions of responsibility and learning with regard to gallery and museum style curation, planning, scheduling, and other related needs of an ongoing contemporary/experimental exhibit space.

All Todd Art Gallery exhibits, receptions, and lectures are free and open to the public. The gallery is open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. closing only for federal, state, and university holidays and exhibit installations. For visitor information including directions, parking, and other questions contact 615-898-5653 or eric.snyder@mtsu.edu.
