Mid-term break starts tomorrow, everyone be safe on the road and come back ready for lots of cultural stuff! The Truman Art Gallery has two great things happening right off the bat when you return.
First, I want to say thank you to everyone who attended the lecture from Jill Weinreich. I heard it was standing room only! Awesome!
Monday evening @ 6pm in OP2210 there will be a lecture by Alumnus Dr. Ryan Gregg on Florentine Renaissance art. I hope you all can make it standing room only again!
Tuesday, October 20, 2009 @ 6pm the American Race exhibit opens! Come out and enjoy the art, the food, and the company!
Here is a bit of information on the rest of the artists. Unfortunately, I could not find any information regarding the artist Jacob Munoz. You will just have to come and see it for yourself.
The paintings of Terri Saul break down stereotypical beliefs of race and heritage through an intertwining of opposing racial stereotypes. Her work challenges the viewers own ideas of normality and “hybridization” through humor and very personal moments of the artist. For a deeper look at her work here is her website http://www.terrisaul.com/index.html
Darlynna John uses digital photography to create images which emphasize an erroneous assumption of her own heritage. Drawing upon these mistaken beliefs, John confronts the viewer and asks the question, “Can you believe what you see?”
The work of Jill Weisberg draws upon her background in graphic design and art. Weisberg’s piece Black Mirror/White Mirror addresses the grey areas of each person’s identity. It allows the viewer to not only read the words, but also, reflect upon their own identity.
