Lindsey Landfried named curator of HUB Galleries

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Lindsey Landfried has been named curator of the HUB Galleries in Penn State Student Affairs. The HUB Galleries are responsible for all of the gallery spaces and art display cases throughout the HUB-Robeson Center as well as the Art of the Move program.

“We are very fortunate and pleased to have Lindsey join the HUB-Robeson Center staff and Student Affairs,” said Mary Edgington, senior director of the HUB-Robeson Center. “She brings a diverse portfolio to the Student Affairs visual arts program that will enable us to further enhance our work with students in this arena and provide exciting new programs and opportunities to more fully engage our students in the arts.”

Landfried is a visual artist, curator, and arts advocate. A twice Penn State alumna, she comes to Student Affairs from the College of Arts and Architecture where she was an instructor of drawing and supported the College Research Office. Landfried was also the curatorial assistant to the Woskob Family Gallery in the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center. In 2017-18 she organized an exhibition of Clearfield, Pennsylvania-based Rebecca Morgan, as well as a three-person exhibition of Mid-Atlantic photographers for the gallery. Currently on view at the Woskob, is an exhibition looking at the book and text titled "Summer Reading," co-curated by Landfried and Ann Tarantino.

Landfried’s artwork has been exhibited throughout the United States and Germany with recent exhibitions at Pentimenti Gallery Philadelphia, Galleri Urbane Dallas, Kwadrat Galleri Berlin, SPACE Gallery of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, and TSA Philadelphia. A 2014-15 Pollock-Krasner award recipient and a 2013 German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) fellow for artistic practice, she has completed residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Takt Kunstraum Tapir Berlin.

Landfried's research interests include professional development for emerging curators, artist-run exhibition spaces, and exhibition opportunities for contemporary artists. 

“I’ve been interested in facilitating cross-disciplinary partnerships for a long time,” said Landfried. “I’m looking forward to engaging students through contemporary art experiences, and facilitating holistic student success through advocacy, education, and support as a part of Student Affairs.”

The HUB Galleries coordinate and host exhibitions of contemporary visual art by student, emerging and professional artists. They bring in artists from around the nation and who work in a variety of art forms. The Art on the Move program gets art out of the galleries and locates exhibits on the many blank walls around campus.
