Selections Make ‘Em All Mexican, The Brown Dot Project, and The Brown Oscars: A Solo Exhibition by Linda Vallejo
When: September 14 to October 29, 2016 all-day
Where: Memorial Student Center (MSC) Room Reynolds Art Gallery
Event Description: The Memorial Student Center Visual Arts Committee is proud to be present Linda Vallejo: Selections from the Make ‘Em All Mexican, The Brown Dot Project, and The Brown Oscars. In her series Make ‘Em All Mexican, Vallejo uses repurposed iconic figurines, images, and artifacts from pop culture and redefines them through her own experience as a Chicana artist. These works evoke intense conversation about how race, color, and class define our understanding and identification of culture. Vallejo’s series The Brown Dot Project articulates the national representation of Latinos in the works force by conceptualizing US data into brown dots on paper. Each “Brown Dot” piece forms an image that represents where Latinos are employed collectively across the United States. The exhibit includes works from the recent Brown Oscars, in this suite Vallejo draws attention to the lack of diversity in one of the nation’s largest industries. Together the Make ‘Em All Mexican, The Brown Dot Project, and The Brown Oscars provide an intentionally challenging yet playful depiction of what it means to be Latino-American.
Photographs in the Wilderness by Lloyd Sneed
When: November 2, 2016- January 14, 2017
Where: Memorial Student Center (MSC) Reynolds Art Gallery
Event Description: The Memorial Student Center Visual Arts Committee is proud to present Photographs in the Wilderness by Lloyd Sneed. Sneed’s series of photographs explores nature in depth and takes viewers on a journey through the lens of a camera. The images capture the many facets of nature in profound clarity. From rising mountains in morning mist to vibrant green moss growing on a backdrop of grey rock, each image creates a moment between the viewer and the subject that is beyond that of a regular photograph. Photographs in the Wilderness incorporates a variety of landscapes and natural subjects to inspire an appreciation of the world around us.
About Lloyd Sneed: Loyd Sneed received his first camera when he was 12 years old and his passion for photography only grew from that point. He received formal training in fine-art photography at Sam Houston State University. After graduating from Sam Houston State in 1975, he went on to receive his doctorate in veterinary microbiology from Texas A&M University in 1985. Sneed’s long career in science can be seen in his analytical approach to photography. His ability to find order in the chaos of the wilderness is the foundation of this exhibit and a part of what makes his pieces so breathtaking.
