The Salon

This is a past event.

The Salon is an exhibition of art created by students in the UAB Department of Art and Art History. Inspired by the Salon des Refusés of 19th-century France, this UAB student exhibition features many of the excellent artworks that were submitted to—but not chosen for—the 46th Annual Juried Student Exhibition.

When jurors choose art for juried exhibitions, they make curatorial choices for the exhibition as a whole, often choosing works not only for their artistic excellence but also for their overall cohesion as an exhibition. Therefore, some excellent works are not selected; there simply isn’t enough room in the gallery. As history shows us, sometimes the best, most innovative art is in the category of des refusés. 

The reception for The Salon opens at 5pm in the Art Lab.

Per UAB guidelines, masks are required at all times regardless of vaccination/boosted status.

Friday, January 14 at 5:00pm to 8:00pm
