Barrows Exhibition Rotunda

Hopkins Center


MacMillan ’14 creates rotunda display

The Barrows Rotunda, the circular space that greets passersby as they enter and exit the Hopkins Center, will showcase the work of studio art intern Julian MacMillan ’14 until Nov. 25. A product of months of work, “The Not Knowing” is MacMillan’s first exhibit, an “exciting and nerve-wracking” experience, he said.

MacMillan arranged small notebook drawings along the glass walls of the rotunda, with his five larger paintings suspended at different levels in the center. The vintage notebook graph paper MacMillan used for the drawings becomes almost translucent in the sunlight, creating a stained glass effect. Illuminated, the colors pop in the sunlight.

At the entrance of the Hopkins Center for the Arts, six figures line the perimeter of the Barrows Rotunda. One wears a flannel shirt, another a light blue North Face jacket. Their arms, thin strips of wood, are outstretched, forming a barrier between onlookers and the conglomeration of cameras, cables and other assorted materials in the display’s center. The rotunda will display “Big Brother Watched This Summer: Raise Your Hands,” a multimedia installation by Matt Sturm ’13, from Sept. 19 to Oct. 20.

The exhibition reflects summer headlines like the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, as well as government surveillance.
