Art Department Opens Exhibition at Denison
Posted: November 20, 2007 / Last Updated: November 24, 2007
Denison's art department will open its six-day exhibit titled "Prey and Predators: Artwork from Studio Art Foundation" from 5 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7, in the Satellite of Art Student Gallery in Doane Library (400 West Loop). The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, photography, ceramics, sculptures and films inspired in part by the McGregor Connections Initiative.
This year's theme for Denison's Office of First-Year Programs McGregor Initiative is "Hum/an/imal: Where We Meet." This year-long investigation of the biological, social, ethical, and metaphorical relationships between human and non-human animals asked first-year students to consider a place at which humans and animals meet and what we, as humans, can learn from that connection. Students were given this description of the theme and then asked to create an artwork, music composition, creative writing piece or essay, or any other creative work in response to our relationship to animals. The students' artwork will be on display from Friday to Wednesday, Dec. 7-12.
