The (R)evolution of Sweet Exhibit in Memorial Union
An exhibit celebrating the early creative vision of former University of Missouri art faculty member Eric Sweet opened today in the Craft Studio in the lower level of the north tower of Memorial Union. Sweet died April 6 and the exhibit is being curated by his wife Catherine Armbrust. The show features Sweet’s works from 1993–2010.
Sweet had worked at MU since 2012 as an adjunct assistant professor teaching printmaking, drawing and 2-D design courses. He earned his BFA and MFA at MU and received an MA in printmaking from the University of Missouri–Kansas City. Sweet also was an active member of the Southern Graphics Council International and the College of Art Association.
Some of the proceeds from the sale of Sweet’s work will benefit the MU Art Department’s Eric Sweet Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The exhibit runs through June 5, with a closing reception on June 4 from 4–6 p.m.
