Our campus hosted a variety of events to celebrate the contributions of women in America and across the world during Women’s History Month, which is celebrated every year in March. This year’s theme is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.
Masks are optional in all campus buildings at this time.
We hope to see you at some of the events listed below.
“Drawing on Identity Exhibition” by artist Christina M. Tedesco
Christina M. Tedesco draws on her personal identity. Her interest in the nature of the human form comes from living with cerebral palsy – a physical disability. Drawing on Identity is a survey show of the last 20 years of her work. Her work deals with the contrast between balance and imbalance, control and the lack thereof. She uses space, time and social settings. She uses color and line to show intensity, to explore how Dyslexia has shaped her unique two-point perspective, and share her perspective on her interactions with society with the audience.
