Dahlia Elsayed visits Austin Peay State University’s Department of Art and starts a war! … ahem, I mean a Tug of War.
Elsayed is one of 2 visiting artists on campus next week( Andrew Demirjian will also be visiting- stay tuned for more on his project in an upcoming post). Dahlia will be conducting a public art project right in the center of campus as part of the Dept of Art’s Living Gallery Program. Her project has been developed with the help of Prof Virginia Griswold’s Sculpture class. The Ideological Tug of War will take place outside the UC on Thursday, Feb 7 at 2pm and will feature students from across campus battling with all their might to settle the score. We’ll see such epic match-ups as MONEY vs PASSION, WORK vs SLEEP, GOD vs THE STATE, and PUPPIES vs KITTENS. Come on out and be ready to pick a side.
Dahlia will be giving a presentation about her work on Tuesday, Feb 5 at 5pm in the Trahern Building(TR401). This event is free and open to the public.
