Disability as Cultural Identity
Need a Break?
RE/FORMATIONS: Disability, Women, and Sculpture, a groundbreaking art exhibition that investigates the intersection between disability and female identities, was cocurated by Jessica Cooley, assistant curator of the Van Every-Smith Galleries, and Ann Fox, associate professor of English. The exhibit, which showcases the work of five female artists, four of whom are disabled, next travels to the National Institute of Arts and Disabilities in Richmond, Calif., March 30 to May 11.
There’s a new landmark on Davidson’s campus. Tucked into Hobart Park is a permanent, outdoor labyrinth. The 30-foot-diameter spiral walking course is made of white and red pavers, designed as a near-replica of the famous labyrinth at Chartres Cathedral in France.
In February, Gary Parriott ’09 and Neil Lerner, associate professor of music, participated in American Zombie, a retrospective honoring “Night of the Living Dead” film director George Romero. Parriott screened films and worked as a zombie at an opening night party. Lerner moderated a panel discussion with Romero following a screening of “Dawn of the Dead.” Lerner also designed the soundtrack for a film promoting the American Zombie event.
