University Gallery

Downtown Campus Gallery

 TXTED, curated by Marisa Sage, explores the ever evolving conversation between art and language.  This group text based exhibition will contain paintings, photographs, drawings, sculpture and installation:  all which utilize text as the agent to intricate conceptual metaphors, visual insights, and complex narratives.  The role humorous and "simple" texts take on in this exhibition echoes their role in "art" currently as a tool which disarms the viewer, allowing them to trust the artist before they are hit with concepts and processes which often reveal the harsh realities of our current political climate and complex societies.  Artists in this exhibition include:  Sol Lewitt, Alex Gingrow, Carrie Mae Weems, Iviva Olenick, Jayson Musson, Michael Scoggins, Meg Hitchcock, John Salvest, David Rathman, William Powhida, Kim Rugg, Daniel Oglander and Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman.

WORK.RESPECT.DIGNITY
Shared Images and Stories of Maryland's Eastern Shore Immigrants an Exhibition of Photographs by Earl Dotter and the Migrant Clinicians Network
Downtown Campus Gallery

Immigrants power the region's economic engines.  Yet their ability to engage in our communities often hinges on their immigration status.  MCN has partnered with renowned photojournalist Earl Dotter to capture the rhythm of their lives and work.  Their images and stories offer an opportunity to humanize the greater immigration discussion.  The goal of this exhibition and panel discussion is to promote civic engagement in an often fraught conversation, to explore the impact of immigration amidst settled communities and the impact of migration on immigrants and their families.

SHAKESPEARE'S KING LEAR
Fulton Hall Black Box Theatre





 

 

The aging Lear decides to divide his kingdom between his three daughters in advance of his death in order to save rebellion after.  Yet he judges by flattery and rules out his youngest and most loved daughter, Cordelia.  Dependent on his two remaining daughters, Lear is soon cast out.  Driven in the wild with only his loyal Fool, Lear goes mad.  Outfacing the storm on the heath and the turbulence within him, Lear confronts his pride.  Raging in remorse, his heart breaking in grief, Lear cradles his murdered Cordelia and dies.  A riveting examination of pride, kingship and the true face of love and duty.  Directed by and featuring Dr. T. Paul Pfeiffer.
