Art Exhibit

MARCH 11-13, TEMPLETON STUDENT CENTER, STAMM


      The 1998 Gender Studies Symposium Art Show will focus on the relationship between class and art, featuring works which specifically address class as subject, as well as those which consider economics more obliquely. Naturally, many of these art projects speak to class through the microphone of gender. Works will come from many corners of our community: Lewis & Clark students, staff, and faculty, and artists from the greater Portland area and beyond.
