Upcoming - MFA Student Exhibitions

"Cultivate: An investigation of Narratives Role in Design" an MFA Exhibition presented by Taylor Klover.

MANHATTAN—The Kansas State University Department of Art will present the exhibition "Cultivate —An investigation of Narrative's Roll in Design" by MFA Candidate Taylor Klover from March 26th— March 30th in the Mark A. Chapman Gallery in Willard Hall, Kansas State University campus. A reception will be held from 6:00 pm — 8:00 pm on Friday, March 30th in the gallery. Events are free and open to the public.

Taylor Klover is from Hiawatha, Kansas, and received her BA in Visual Communication from Kansas Wesleyan University. Interested in the power of imagery as a communication tool, Klover has explored ways in which brands communicate with their audience on a more personal level through the process of storytelling techniques and methods. Investigating literary and visual moods of storytelling, Klover has created an extension of her findings through Cultivate. The show communicates the importance of self-sustainability through growing one's own food and looks to provide a sense of inspiration for those interested in connecting with their food and health in a more direct manner. Cultivate additionally aims at spurring dialogue around such issues as self-sustainability and food insecurity. The exhibition is presented as part of the Master of Fine Arts Degree requirements.
