Intersections of Gender and Place is a biennial exhibition that examines various issues of gender and also the impact of this region on the artist’s work. The parameters are purposefully vague so that the invited artists may address the theme through their own interpretations. The result is lively ‘conversation’ about gender in the South.

Our celebration of this Mexican tradition is back with our annual Day of the Dead altar.  Students in Professor Erinn Holloway’s Spanish class will give a gallery talk about the tradition in front of the installation.
