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 ‘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.
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.
