Opening Reception

The UNF Gallery at MOCA Jacksonville presents A Patterned Response, on display from March 31 through August 19, 2018. 


MOCA Jacksonville's Permanent Collection is an accessible resource for University of North Florida (UNF) students, who aspire to develop a deeper understanding of contemporary art and curatorial processes. Conceptualized by students of UNF Painting and Drawing Guild, A Patterned Response highlights a unique collaboration between students, Professor Jason John, Gallery Director Jim Draper, and the Museum's curatorial team. Throughout the winter term, students engaged in active and thoughtful conversations to curate a project exhibition that operates in dialogue with the adjacent exhibition Attentive Arrangements.


The exhibition will be on display at the UNF Gallery of MOCA Jacksonville, 2nd Floor, 333 N. Laura St., Jacksonville, FL, 32202, 904-366-6911.

Bill of Rights Poster Exhibition: Student Works with Professors Beth Nabi and Blake Coglianese

March 28, 2018 - August 20, 2018

The "Bill of Rights Poster Exhibition" is on display in the Cynthia & Walter B. Graham, Jr., M.D. Student Art Gallery on the 2nd floor of the Thomas G. Carpenter Library on UNF Campus. This exhibition features works from Fall 2017 by the UNF Graphic Design + Digital Media students taught by Assistant Professors Beth Nabi and Blake Coglianese. The students were challenged to produce two typographic broadsides of the Bill of Rights: a traditional version designed in black and white and a contemporary or experimental version that could use up to four color spots. The students' designs present diverse commentaries on the Bill of Rights, touching on themes of reverence, nostalgia, tension, oppression, distortion, progress, evolution, misinterpretation, selectivity, clarity and obscurity.
