In this interdisciplinary and interactive exhibition, Dana Lynn Louis will transform the Hoffman Gallery into an experiential environment that explores the varied meanings of “clearing.”

In this new body of work, viewers will enter an ethereal landscape inside and outside of the Hoffman Gallery, composed of drawings, sculpture, photography, projections, and sound.

Louis will be drawing in the gallery from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 13; Tuesday, September 16; Saturday, September 20; and Tuesday, September 23.
