Gallery Opening Reception for "Lifeboats"
Be sure to stop by the SSFA gallery reception today from 4 to 6. The impressive installation "Lifeboats" is by Southwestern University alum Heather Carter. The gallery is open 1 to 5 Monday to Friday and the exhibit will be up through September 29.
"In a time of massive environmental disasters, resource constraints, global climate change, economic upheaval, and geopolitical instability, this installation calls our attention to the signs of change. It urges us to consider the transition back to a simpler life, the strength in community and tradition and re-learning our ancestors' skills. This installation is a call to gather together and build lifeboats. "
