The exhibition …we can know more than we can tell… (Michael Polanyi, 1958) actualizes intuitive dimensions of knowledge that happen both through experiential learning and the research and creation of artworks. The show reunites alumni and community partners of past engaged learning classes in a process of artistic conversation. By way of artistic work, community partners offer a part of their practice to which alumni will respond in creation of their own work; the streams of work revealing tacit connections, corresponding impulses and propensity of influence. The exhibition of works consists of the threads of inquiry, demonstrating a community of collaboration wherein art thrives.
