Photo Battle Oct 9 7 - 10pm

Flight is sometimes depicted as a condition of human willpower and a demonstration of spirituality. Flight can also be used as a form of escape. This exhibit spans the history of flight showing movement through the use of images, textures, and digital production. The result is an art form of composites using our creative imagination.

After Selma: work by Joshua Rashaad McFadden
Spruill Gallery
Featuring work by: Joshua McFadden

Opening Reception Sep 17 6- 9pm

The year 2015 marks the fifty-year fight for human and civil rights in America. Yet, what was supposed to be a time of celebration turned into one of uprising across the nation. Half a century later, America is left with the question, "After Selma, where are we now?"

Photographer Joshua McFadden is a visual storyteller, whose interest in social justice advances human and civil rights in America through the narrative of his series, "After Selma". His work illuminates similarities between the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the demonstrations of the new millennium. McFadden's work depicts the passion, anger and sadness of recent events in America, while at the same time showing the hope, strength and unity of a nation.

The exhibition will display framed photographs of intimate moments from the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. There will also be a night of projections and an open forum with the artist that will give a look into McFadden's multimedia work.

Exhibition Sep 17 - Oct 24
