Juniata College Museum of Art

Juniata College Museum of Art Small art museum in a lovely 1907 former Carnegie Library, with changing exhibitions year round. The Juniata College Museum of Art is located in Carnegie Hall, a Beaux-Arts structure built in 1907 as the college library through funds provided by Andrew Carnegie and the citizens of Huntingdon.

Designed by New York architect Edward Tilton, Carnegie Hall reflects turn-of-the-century library design. It includes a grand entrance stairway, a domed rotunda, and three separate wings that originally functioned as reading rooms and open stacks. The entire structure retains its original grandeur and elegance. In particular, the rotunda, dome, and tiffany-styled stained glass oculus create an impressive central space. Carnegie Hall served as the college library until 1963, when its holdings were transferred to the newly constructed L.A. Beeghly Library. Funds provided by Mabelle Shoemaker, wife of local historian and folklorist Col. Henry Shoemaker, helped to convert Carnegie Hall into a fine arts studio and exhibition center. In 1998, the acquisition of the Worth B. Stottlemyer Collection led to the formation of the Juniata College Museum of Art. Through funds provided by Edwin A. and Susan Rabinowitz Malloy, Carnegie Hall was fully renovated as the Juniata College Museum of Art.

Mission: The Juniata College Museum of Art (JCMA) contributes to the social and intellectual well-being of its campus and local communities by providing access to works of distinctive aesthetic quality in ways that inspire, provoke creative and critical thought, and refresh the spirit.

As part of our new project From Our Walls to Yours, the JCMA spotlights artists of various backgrounds to promote a more equitable museum culture. Richard Mayhew is an Afro-Native American landscape painter. His landscapes are full of color, creating a mindscape,  “My mindscapes are also about the healing of the long trauma that Black and Native communities have experienced collectively.”  #jcmawalltowall

Professor Blake told me this was meant for a sculpture, I think I look much better here. Brings a whole new meaning to living art. I think this is the perfect place to go and take photos for Instagram. You should send me photos of you posed like a statue!

It’s time to dress up and pretend to be someone you’re not. Let art inspire your costume! You could be Little Red Riding Hood with the iconic red cape and basket of goodies. How about a fancy British lady like The Honorable Mrs. Graham, with feathers and lace. The Emperor Napoleon anyone? And then there’s always the Grim Reaper. Tag us in your best costume shots @jcmofa! Happy Halloween!

I headed to the other side of the museum. It's so pretty and the leaves are fun to play with. I love all the windows. I imagine it would be fun to sit in the attic window and watch the cars go by. The red bricks and yellow leaves complement my fur. Did you know the museum has pictures of cats just like me? Check out Puss Napping by George Baxter, an oil color lithograph

I took a look at the rotunda. The stained-glass window in the ceiling reminds me of a human's eye, much rounder than a cat's eye. You really should check out the window! The friendly gallery attendant smiled and waved at me. They came outside and gave the best head pats.

Sitting on the porch is the perfect place to watch the birds jump around and the leaves fall. The cool tiles feel nice on my toe beans compared to cement. The square tiles are like little boxes and I love boxes.
This is such a nice place to visit!

Katie Ross
Humorism is an outdated medical theory established around 500 B.C. that remained influential until the 1800s. The theory stated that the differentiating levels of the four humors in the body affected physical health and emotional temperament. An excess of any one of these humors presumably resulted in distinct emotional states. Individuals with an excess of phlegm were believed to be phlegmatic in temperament: calm, peaceful, and apathetic; it was often associated with old age. Yellow bile was associated with adolescence and a choleric temperament: anger, aggression, and quick temper. Blood humors were associated with childhood and a sanguine temperament: happiness, hope, and playfulness. Finally, black bile humors were associated with adulthood and a melancholic temperament: depression and despondence, often considered too extreme to be expressed through words. With this series of artworks, I wanted to showcase the physical characteristics and emotions associated with each humor using facial expression, body language, color, and age.

Katie Ross was raised in the small town of Oxford, New Jersey. She discovered her passion for art at a young age, and she started to seriously pursue art in high school, becoming fascinated with portraiture. Katie values how art can be used as a method to express one’s feelings, how there are countless ways to interpret it, and that it can move viewers no matter what

background they come from. Katie will graduate from Juniata College in May with a degree in
Visual Arts and a secondary emphasis in Art History.

Laura Chiarella. In Scottish mythology and some Irish and Icelandic stories, there are tales of shapeshifting creatures who can shed their seal skins and turn into humans: the Selkies. My work includes illustrations from a narrative I am developing that intertwines the Selkie myth with American maritime folklore and my experiences at home. By combining this imagery, my illustrations explore themes such as identity, environment, and their capacity for change.

Laura Chiarella is from Fair Haven, New Jersey. From a young age she loved drawing, and rediscovered her passion for art in high school. Living on the East coast has developed her fascination with the ocean and environment, and her love of stories has inspired her to pursue an interest in illustration. Earning a degree in Visual Arts with Communication, Laura will graduate from Juniata this May.

Excellent exhibition, we truly enjoyed it! Gunnar identified the prints as "wobbley" - pretty good for a 2.5 year old!
