WVU-MU rivalry: From gridiron to gallery
Quote:On the football field, on the basketball court and in the hearts of many Mountain State residents, there's a rivalry that runs deep between the Thundering Herd of Marshall University and the West Virginia University Mountaineers. But in the art gallery?

The Clay Center will allow the two schools to go paintbrush to paintbrush with "Gallery Divided: A Head-to-Head Matchup between Marshall and WVU Art Faculty." The public is invited to wear team colors at a free kickoff party from 6 to 8 p.m. on opening night, Aug. 11.

A New Mexico native, curator Arif Khan had no knowledge of the rivalry when he came to the Clay Center a year ago. He created the exhibit following visits to both schools.

"I'm getting close to a year here in the job, and I wanted to get to know the regional artists. I visited both campuses' art departments."

"At first I thought it would be funny to do a show, with this rivalry and all. And then I realized, hey, that's not such a bad idea," Khan said. "A lot of the artists had never shown at the Clay Center, and the response from both schools was so great."
