MAD AS HELL Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: Art Gallery - Greenspring Campus Details:
MAD AS HELL - Mia Halton: "Focused with precision, [women's anger] can become a powerful source of energy, serving progress and change." Audre Lorde
In her newest installation of mural painting, drawing and ceramics, Mia Halton explores the power of rage to foment revolutionary social movements. She references history, including the parallels between the women's movements of the 1990s and today, calling notions of progress into question. As a member of the Me Too movement, Halton understands women's anger as a tool for both change and healing. MAD AS HELL is a rallying cry for the application of individual and collective power -- fueled by rage -- to accomplish the goals of contemporary women's movements.

OLD and NEW - 2019 Faculty Showcase Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: Manning Academic Center - Owings Mills Campus - North Details:
Artists sometimes look to their past works as a rich source of information from which to develop their creative practice. OLD and NEW explores how sampling from that history can drive exciting, new developments. Faculty from the School of Design each present two pieces: one recent and one that comes from an older body of work, but which was influential to the evolution of the recent creation.
Exhibition: February 2 - April 7, 2019, Gallery, Kevin Manning Academic Center, Owings Mills North Campus
Reception: February 4, 2019, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.; Gallery, Kevin Manning Academic Center

Stevenson University students are pleased to present reflecting us: identities and interpretations during 2019. Book arts, videos, photography, and historic and personal statements are featured in this Creative Lounge installation.

This dialog between the past and present is lyrical in scope and form. You are encouraged to participate in this year-long exhibition more than once.
