Sharif Bey November 5 2021

Sharif Bey, associate professor in the School of Art, is having the solo show “Excavations” at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh through March 6, 2022. The exhibition presents new works inspired by the artist’s “excavations” of the museum collections that first piqued his interest as a youth visiting Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. On view are mask-like forms, necklaces made from pinch pot-style vessels as beads, and site-specific temporary installations that incorporate Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s broad collections of artifacts and specimens.
