Kent Library’s Spring 2012 Athenæum Series: Artist Talk

On Wednesday, February 1, 2012, at noon in Sadie’s Place at Kent Library, Kristen Powers Nowlin from the Department of Art will discuss her artwork exploring issues of race and gender. In her current body of woodblock prints she uses images and symbols for the ways that either our popular culture or our scientific/academic culture have used to specify the race of an individual. Individually, the woodblock prints either consciously use these stereotypes as a way to question their absurdity or explore the issues through more personal history and narratives. As a whole, her work challenges the unique history of race in American culture. This event is open to all and refreshments will be served.
