In Fabrics of Meaning, the artist explores the fluid nature of identity with a series of works made from paper created with fabric gathered from family members. This exhibit represents the fibers of Marian’s family; how they transcend physical space, and the definition of place. The use of physical location acted as a “jumping off point” with which to articulate this diverse and expansive family.
Marian was born in Rochester NY, where she resided until 2004. She moved to Colorado to finish high school, and then attended Colorado College, in Colorado Springs. Marian is a current graduate candidate, Ed.M. at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education in the Arts in Education program. She seeks to address how the arts can both support and build inclusive learning communities with a universal design for learning.
The event begins June 18th and will run through August 31st.
The Opening Reception will be held June 19th from 4-7pm, featuring Edward Clapp, editor of 20UNDER40: Re-Inventing the Arts and Arts Education for the 21sr Century.
