Where: Dorthy Uber Bryan Gallery, 7 p.m.

Since the completion, 5 years ago, of the first deciphering of the human genome- the molecular design of human beings- and its assurance than an individual's most basic essence can be identified and manipulated, a tumult of controversy has ensued. Concerns about genetic discrimination, the morality of cloning, genetic engineering and the administration of health care have underscored the issue of DNA ownership and personal privacy. The artists in this exhibition have created works that examine this controversial issue from a variety of positions. These artists include Paul Vanouse, Amy Youngs, Larry Miller, Greg Little, Suzanne Anker and Sue Hettmansperger.

Leading Lights: BGSU Alumni Artists

 

August 30 through October 1, 2005



Where: Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery

This invitational exhibition features 33 successful artists in all stages of their careers. Spanning graduation dates from 1958 through 2003, the artists work includes remarkable diversity, from enormous paintings, to small brooches, to annual reports. The artists in this exhibition were selected by current BGSU art faculty members in each of the four divisions: 2-D, 3-D, Digital Arts and Design. Choosing from the hundreds of outstanding graduates over the years was a very difficult task, and many very successful graduates will have to wait for the next alumni show  only because even the spectacular Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery cannot hold all of the work that the BGSU School of Art would like to show off. This exhibit was made possible with generous support from the BGSU Alumni Association, College of Arts & Sciences, Graduate College, School of Art and Medici Circle. Gallery hours: 10-4 Tue.-Sat., 1-4 Sun.
