DESCRIPTION

Reception: Fri., Oct. 5, 6-9 p.m.

The Individualized Major Program presents an interdisciplinary exhibition of ideas about other places, getting lost, wandering, and the possibility that the wrong place is exactly where we need to be. Behold souvenirs and wonders from distant lands: distant in time, distant in space, and existing only in the mind.

The participating artists transform the gallery space into a giant cabinet of marvels including dioramas, films, and fantastic tales chronicling the thousand realms of wonder that lie beyond our familiar experience: the New World, the Old World, outer space, alternative versions of the everyday world, flights of fancy, and places you’ve never been.
