What I Want to be When I Grow Up: An Artistic Exploration of Gender Formation and Identity,
Nov 16 to Nov 18
This exhibit by University Honors student Clairissa Harris is an exploration of gender from conception to adulthood in our society today. The showcase combines the research of gender identity and formation in terms of social, biological, and developmental factors with the visuals of a storyline installation art showcase.
The art display will be in the Manderino Gallery on the third floor during hours of operation, with an official opening on November 16 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. The opening will consist of an Honors Senior Thesis presentation of the installation itself, accompanied by a detailed explanation of how the piece came to be and the research behind it. There will be light refreshments before and after the presentation outside of the gallery.
The installation will be on display from Wednesday, November 16 through Friday, November 18 during normal library hours of operation.
Manderino Library Gallery: This is the primary location for exhibits. It is on the third floor of the library. Exit the elevator/stairs and turn left. Turn left again when you get to the carpet. The Gallery is ahead on the left.
Manderino Room 319: When there are additional items to be displayed, or a second exhibit, this area is used. It is also on the third floor of the library. Exit the elevator/stairs and turn left. Turn RIGHT when you get to the carpet. The room is ahead on the right. The walls do not go all the way to the ceiling, so it is like a large cubicle.
