Opening reception for "Who Am I to Feel So Free?," which showcases the works of 13 artists currently enrolled in the Five College Special Topics Studio Art Seminar. Over the course of the past semester, each artist has been asked to consider persona, duality, and representation through the intersection of pop culture and fine art.

Each artist has followed an individualized path to create new work in painting, sculpture, performance, video, drawing, and dance.  In addition, each student has reflected on this process through a series of writing exercises and research. 

Food and beverages will be served.

The exhibition was made possible with support from the Five College Consortium and the UMass Arts Council and funds from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts.


Herter Art Gallery is located at the north end of Herter Hall west of the Fine Arts Center. Public parking is available at all times behind the Robsham Visitors Center and at meters along Haigis Mall. Nights and weekends parking is also available in Lot #71, west of the Whitmore Administration Building.
