The Power of Place: KU Alumni Artists

Sam and Connie Perkins Central Court, 317; Dolph Simons Family Gallery, 316; Estelle S. and Robert A. Long Ellis Foundation Gallery, 315

The Power of Place considers profound understandings of place in the work 29 artists who received degrees from KU. Each artist compels the power of hand making in some form, and addresses the power of place, whether it be historical places; the spaces of a textile as place; sites or places of past or current distress, trauma, or violence; place as an abstract idea; or place as a visceral reality. The focus on place also explores the power of this place—the KU campus and community—in shaping students who make art.

This exhibition is supported by KU Student Senate and the Linda Inman Bailey Exhibitions Fund.
