3x Umass at Large

Monday, May 1, 2017 (All day)

Three artists have created colorful interactive mixed media installations incorporating performance, sculpture, still and moving imagery and sound to create sensorial experiences.

The Unnacustomed Vanishing Point

Saturday, April 29, 2017 (All day)
