Event Description

ON VIEW: JANUARY 14 –MARCH 26, 2017 Nicole Miller’s time-based practice explores the experiences of everyday people as the subject of her work, using film as the medium through which she examines the bonds of family, community, and representation. A recent acquisition by the Ulrich Museum of Art, Miller’s five-channel video installation Death of a School documents the 2013 closure of an elementary school in Tucson, Arizona. The school fell victim to the same type of political maneuvering which led to the eradication of “ethnic” studies in elementary and secondary school curricula throughout the state. Filmed on the final two days prior to the school’s doors shuttering, the work offers a somber meditation on community, belonging, and fractures within the public educational school system in the United States. Gallery Hours: 11 AM-5 PM Tuesday-Friday. 1 PM-5 PM Saturday and Sunday. Museum is Closed on Mondays and all major holidays.
