Bey’s ‘Excavations’ on display at Carnegie Museum of Art


Oct. 8, 2021

The latest exhibition, “Excavations,” by Sharif Bey, a 1998 Slippery Rock University graduate with a degree in art, is currently on display at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.

Bey’s sculptures include 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.

The exhibit is in Gallery One of the Carnegie Museum of Art through March 6. More information is available on the museum’s website.

Bey, a Beltzhoover native, is an associate professor of art at Syracuse University. His work was previously featured at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Pittsburgh Glass Center.
