Morrill Hall Exhibit
Modern Art Arouses
By JUDY BOST
Examples of contemporary art
now being shown in Morrill Hall
have aroused much controversy
among art students on the cam
pus. Both non-objective and impres
sionistic paintings are being ex
hibited in the March show of the
Kebraska Art Association, bring
ing examples of the art world's
most bitter controversy to the Uni
versity. University art students com
mented that one of the greatest
misconceptions about' art was the
belief that all modern art was of
the variety that looks like spilled
Non-objective or Don-realistic
paintings, which the con-initiated
call dirty pallettes passed off as
art, represent an appeal to aesthe
tic senses rather than an attempt
to express any literary meaning,
Painters of this type of art fall
Into many schools of interpreta
tion, Pablo Picasso shows many
likenesses to the style of Cezanne.
There is also a New York school
representicg another variety of
coo-objective art, they added.
Impressionists rely on subject
mailer and the use of a figure to
convey thought, they continued.
for exponents of this type of art
use a lot of the swirling motion,
bold lines and vivid color of Van
Art students felt that the prin
ciples of modern or contempo
rary art are not difficult to un
derstand. In literature, worcs be
come tools used to convey a f3el
ing. Words, they continued, are su
perficial. It is the conveyance of
an impression or an idea that is
important; contemporary art is
tms same principle applied to
Another misconception is that
all contemporary art is done by
the pizza-and-beer boys of Green
wich Village, art students said.
Not all artists are unconventional
types who live in caves and by
strict Spartacism insure inspira
tion, they said.
"It is a cultural crime that so
few students take advantage of
the exhibits of many artists of all
periods, not just contemporary art
ists, that are available in Morrill
Hall," one of the students said.
"Perhaps then, if more people
understood and appreciated art,
we would not be regarded as the
"squirre'Jy characters" of the
campus," she added with a hint
of a smile. I

doesn't affect me any more,"
Marrs concluded. "It's just a mat

Marrs expressed hope that his
explanation might bring an end to
the constant questioning to which
he is subject whenever he appears
on campus without a coat which
is all the time. People not only
ask questions such as "Why don't
you buy a coat?" but some ac

If the explanation does not bring
such comments to an end, maybe
the coming of spring will halt
them until next winter, anyway.
