State of the Environment / Fate of the Earth: The Art of Environmental Justice
The Dana Hall Art Gallery presents State of the Environment / Fate of the Earth: The Art of Environmental Justice, showcasing work from a collection of Boston area artists:
Sue Hammerland ( Painting )
Gordon D. Chase ( Drawing )
Allison Maria Rodriguez ( Assemblage and Video )
Michelle Lougee ( Sculpture )
"This exhibit brings together four artists from the Boston area whose work is inspired by environmental issues. Using a variety of different materials and approaches, these artists are not only creating beautiful, frightening, and challenging images and objects, but through these artworks, they are telling stories and confronting issues surrounding the effects of climate change and other man-made disasters on plant and animal life on earth. Some whimsical, some more serious, all inspired by what is happening to the natural world around us and what might happen in the future." said Michael Frassinelli, director of the Dana Art Gallery and Visual Arts Department Head.
The show will be on display through February 7 and is located in the Classroom Building. The Dana Hall Art Gallery is open to the public Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The gallery is closed weekends and school holidays.
"My favorite Dana Hall memory would be the first time I ever sang the Alma Mater with my fellow classmates. That was most definitely the first time I felt like I was truly a part of something. Joining hands with my future Silver Sisters made me truly feel like I was a Dana girl."
