Unique is one way to describe the annual Kinsey Institute Juried Art Show. Its thought-provoking and memorable contemporary art — paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, videos, sculpture, ceramics and fiber art — converges on the Grunwald Gallery of Art at IU Bloomington after an internationally known competition.

I always enjoy visiting the exhibit, which is part of IU’s Summer Festival of the Arts. This might be the year when I make it to the opening, which I’m told is very entertaining. Many of the artists attend, and visitors get to vote on the “Gallery Visitors’ Choice” award ($200). Multimedia intern Lena Morris created the video, which shares information about the exhibit and includes some of the art.
