Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Something Cold and Hard Like Winter

Shelley Niro
Feb. 24 – April 3, 2020

This exhibition showcases the movement of time through images of rocks, tryptychs and a video creating time immemorial. There is history as in history books and then there is evidence of looking at the surface of the earth and taking what is there for granted. We are part of the earth and will remain so. | Read More

Book Room

Rochelle Rubinstein
Jan. 6 – Feb. 15, 2020

The two rooms in Rochelle Rubinstein’s Book Room are not ordinary rooms. Unlike a library, they don’t house books; books are, rather, their very masonry. Much as a room symbolically represents the workings of the traumatic mind, a book is a figure of trauma, and it tells us how to read it. Reading a book is linear; meaning is revealed cover to cover, over time. Like trauma we can never take in all of a book’s meaning in one sitting. | Read More

Written Upon Leaves

Lana Filippone
Oct. 14 – Nov. 22, 2019

Written Upon Leaves follows mythological, spiritual and ecological narratives set off by a single leaf or petal and its complex tale; whereby we find meaning and create relationships with their symbols and archetypes. May we be reminded of deep interconnection of organisms and adaptations through darkness and light, seasonal and planetary rhythms, one another and of the proliferation and decrement of life. | Read More

In) Formation unveils a new model for the Gallery. This model intersects two worlds that historically have been separate, the not-for-profit and the commercial. In) Formation will tantalize viewers with the possibilities of memory, language, sound and moments of understanding. | Read More

Coalesce

Barry Ace
Feb. 25 – April 5, 2019

Coalesce is a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from western society’s technological and digital age – to intentionally shift an object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. | Read More

Heaven and Earth

Xiaojing Yan
Jan. 7 – Feb. 8, 2019

My art practice focuses on intricate sculptural installations that explore the intersection of cultural and natural worlds. Classical Chinese mythology, folklore and symbolism act as the catalyst for my re-examination and reinterpretation of these century old references. | Read More

Slide Library

Susan Dobson
Oct. 15 – Nov. 23, 2018

Over the past few years I have photographed a number of university slide libraries that were in the process of being dismantled. As these collections were being replaced with digital archives, they had not been updated or even maintained in a long time. | Read More

Crepuscule

Douglas R. Ewart
Aug. 27 – Oct. 5, 2018

Crepuscule events are large-scale, organized community improvisations that build connections across boundaries of culture, class, gender, and ethnicity. Through sound and story, a crepuscule provides space for all people to participate in multiple forms of art-making, building a sense of community cohesion and creative energy. | Read More
