Opening Reception:
Thursday, November 7th, 5-7 PM


Herter Art Gallery presents wherever i may be, the sky is mine, a group exhibition of current 1st and 2nd year graduate students who critically respond to this era of cacophony of voices and noises, where truths are crumbled by repudiation of facts. The exhibition features artworks that grapple with some of the most urgent issues of our time, yet through modest means. Facing our precarious future, the artists offer various modes of observing, caring, reconsidering, remembering, gathering, repairing, healing, and countering the myth of the ‘greatness’ of America.


Curated by Professor Young Min Moon, the artists in this exhibition are Taylor Benoit, Chenda Cope, Sally Curcio, Hannah Duggan, Avery Forbes, Cima Khademi, Nima Nikaklagh, Abbey Paccia, Jessica Scott, and Chaehee Yoon.


This exhibition was made possible with generous support from the UMass Arts Council and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public as well as to all Five College students, faculty, and staff. For further questions, please contact the gallery at
