I HEAR AMERICA SINGING
May 4 - May 27, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, May 4 | 5 - 9 PM during Art Loop
Jennifer Borders mines historical protest poetry, the speeches of current protest movements, and her family’s past in this new mixed-media installation piece. The show includes drawings from a small selection of written manuscripts by writers, poets, and activists. Borders uses these written works and other elements in the show to meditate on America's emotional state of mind and our process of collectively creating it. The works of Walt Whitman, Maya Angelou, Carl Sandburg, Langston Hughes, the student Emma Gonzalez, among others, are included.
