The Beehive Collective

beehive7

November 10 – December 13.  Opening Reception: November 10, 4-6pm.

What is it like to work as part of an artist collective? The Beehive Collective has traveled to and worked with groups around the world, translating complex global stories into collaboratively drawn images that take on a life of their own. Their most recently printed graphic, Mesoamérica Resiste, was nine years in the making. This large-format narrative illustration tells stories of grassroots organizing and community resilience from Mexico to Colombia and also celebrates cultural and ecological diversity. This exhibit will inspire us to imagine the diverse ways that the arts can motivate and activate local and global communities. Curated by the PSU Museum Studies class, led by Professor of Art History Jayme Yahr.

African Cloth Speaks

MJzkkEUZUSIS4bex3OmbP4qmXFPHI3mjN871Vf9Fmdc

November 5 – December 12.  Opening Reception: November 5, 4-6pm.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them.  Whether the fabric represents ethnic membership, age, religious affiliation, class status, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity.  Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped tied, or tailored – all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages.  Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death.  Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.
