Ephemeral: The Spirits Among Us


The annual Ephemeral art exhibition curated by Adelphi University Associate Professor Carson Fox, celebrates the temporary and fleeting. The community is welcome to view works by internationally renowned artists and performers, and participate in the immensely popular Chalk Up!, which transforms the campus sidewalks with chalk images and text. Over the past three years, hundreds of students, faculty and staff have created a wide range of spectacular works in a rainbow of colors across campus.

For the 2015 Ephemeral exhibition, titled The Spirits Among Us, contemporary artists grapple with issues of human physicality, mortality and belief. Artists include Kiki Smith, Lesley Dill, Mark Fox, Fred Tomaselli, Peter Drake, Virgil Marti, Margo Humphrey, Jennifer D. Anderson, Cynthia Thompson, Fred Stonehouse, Maureen Cummins and Clarissa Sligh.

The exhibition will be on view from September 29 through November 11, 2015 at Adelphi University’s Ruth S. Harley University Center Gallery, 1 South Avenue in Garden City. An important aspect of the exhibition series is to serve as an opportunity for the Adelphi community to creatively play, experiment, and collaborate using the theme as a launching pad. 

Adelphi intends to make the celebration of ephemeral art an annual event extending an open invitation to the community to join in exploring the fleeting nature of creativity and its creations.

The Ruth S. Harley University Center Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, from 12:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
