Eureka Moments: Vernissage and Exhibition



Every year, to inspire cross-disciplinary discussion and work, SPACE chooses a general theme–this year, what we’re calling “Eureka Moments.” While the term may be romanticized and over-hyped in our culture, we are using it to draw attention not only to moments of breakthrough or insight or creation, but also to the processes and works that precede such moments.

This exhibition is a celebration of the works-in-progress and processes behind a range of projects, projects pursued both individually and in groups, by students and faculty across a number of disciplines. Several of the projects involve interdisciplinary collaboration, and all of them inspire us to consider the context of Eureka Moments, to acknowledge the ground that prepares us for discovery and invention, and to continue to explore new directions and deepen our knowledge.

If you’d like to get involved in communicating and collaborating with others this year through SPACE, get in touch with us–we’d love to hear from you! And enjoy the exhibition.


The SPACE Coordinators,

David Hall (Fine Arts)
Andrew Katz (English/CALL)
Joel Trudeau (Physics)
Jiri Tucker (History/Classics)



SPACE would like to gratefully acknowledge the support of the Office of Instructional Development and the Student Success Action Plan for making this exhibition and SPACE work throughout the college possible. Special thanks as well Frank Mulvey, Joe Di Leo, and Helen Wawrzetz in helping to coordinate and prepare the exhibition.

    Just got back from the Vernissage—wow! Congratulations to all the students and faculty who have created such amazing exhibits. I’m feeling inspired by your work, and by the general theme of process and works-in-progress, which deserve as much celebration as the breakthrough or new insight or creation that may come later, as a (often unforeseen) fruit of the process.

    Looking forward to going back to the exhibition tomorrow and just walking around and taking it in, slowly. Hope everyone gets the chance to do the same.

    Spent some time in the gallery this morning, and was really impressed by the scope of things that people were working on! From holograms to paintings to spatial designs, and everything in between. Really cool way to bring a good semester of SPACE to a close. Definitely going to head back later today.
