The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) at Cal State San Bernardino will celebrate International Museum Week, May 18-22, and everyone is invited to join!

A large part of the week-long celebration is the Emerging Artist Virtual Exhibition. All emerging artists (students, staff, faculty and community) are eligible to participate in a new form of exhibition. This was created by RAFFMA to connect and bring the art community together. Details regarding submissions can be found on RAFFMA’s website.

The objective of International Museum Week, according to the International Council of Museums, is to raise awareness on the fact that “museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.”

The current global situation has transformed the day-to-day operations for people all over the world. This drastic change has forced us to look and think about things differently. In this altered state we have the opportunity to consider the things we’ve taken for granted and potentially find joy in simpler things.

For the purpose of this virtual exhibition, RAFFMA put out a call to emerging artists to either create or share a work that has been made to address the silver lining of this situation. The aim in this virtual exhibition is to highlight any positivity we can take from the situation.
