Communi-Tea Culture Jan. 24 - Feb. 17

This exhibition is a collaboration of ideas and materials between faculty, students, and staff. Communi-Tea Culture is an artistic interpretation and expression of a tea culture: from the perspective of self, family and/or community. Communi-Tea aims to reveal the multifaceted and ingrained impact that tea culture has on our society. From the perspectives of self, family, relationships, and community, each artist in this exhibition shows how tea culture has impacted them. This varies based on the individual artist's life experiences. These themes are explored within each piece of work by faculty, staff, and students, in a wide variety of media such as painting, ceramics, sculpture, music, and printmaking.


The Forest Park Gallery of Contemporary Art is located next to the Library, room L125. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m.-2p.m.
