Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, The Art Galleries at TCU invited students and faculty to visit “You Are Here,” a Moudy Gallery fine arts exhibition.

“You Are Here” is a thesis exhibition by graduating TCU MFA candidate Sierra Forester. The gallery web page describes the work to be minimal yet “immersive in nature” and focused on “the notion of discovery and journey.”

When asked about the inspiration for “You Are Here,” Forester said while walking outside she noticed a large amount of litter and debris, as well as “incredibly interesting objects that collect in our environment.”

“If my viewers are to take anything from my exhibition, I would hope they come out of the show with questions,” Forester said. “The entire exhibition is sponsored by questions that often have no answers.”

TCU has closed its art galleries for public viewing due to COVID-19, but students, faculty and staff can make appointments to visit exhibitions at the Fort Worth Contemporary Arts and the Moudy Gallery.

For non-students and staff, virtual 3-D walk-throughs and video tours are offered on the TCU fine arts webpage.

“You Are Here” is open until Oct. 12.
