Home: Function / Dysfunction / Make Believe

DATE & TIME:October 31 – December 1

Artists explore the meaning of personal and shared space in this exhibit in the Hewitt Gallery of Art.

Does home mean a hallowed inner sanctum, a spiritual retreat? Or is it fraught with economic, sociological, and psychological issues from cleanliness to physical abuse? Is it small, large, modest, elaborate, stable or mobile? —and what of those who have no home?
