Juror Mark Rospenda brings depth to the curatorial role of the Juried Student Exhibition as he is both an artist and a curator. Rospenda lives and works in South Bend, IN, where he is Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at the South Bend Museum of Art. He has organized and overseen more than 75 exhibitions during his time at the museum. Rospenda’s own work has been exhibited at the Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg, SC; DEMO Project, Springfield, IL; Herron Galleries, Indianapolis, IN; and other locations nationally. As the winner of the Director’s Choice Award in the 2016 Art From the Heartland exhibition, he was granted a solo exhibition at the Indianapolis Art Center, Indianapolis, IN, in early 2019. Rospenda will share his observations of the work juried into this exciting annual exhibition of student work during his curatorial talk.
