Now-September 2

Special ‘UD for Kids’ Exhibit

"A Horse of a Different Color: Invented Animals"


September 3-September 26

WORK: Curse or Calling
The subject of this show, WORK: CURSE or CALLING, certainly elicits a range of responses including pleasure or pressure, calling or dread. From a faith-based perspective, work may simply be a natural response to God’s presence and grace. To be sure, when we ask our students - work - or at least the anticipation of ‘well paying’ work is a great motivator to be at this University. What place is 'calling' in the idea of work?

In this show, we explore the notion of art as work (both as a calling and a curse) in the 32 works displayed. The artists are from across the United States. Catalog accompanies the show.
