Fears (and Costumes) on Display October 31 in the Coburn Gallery

Start your Halloween night right by joining us in the Coburn Gallery for a Halloween Costume Ball and the opening of our new exhibit, "Drawing on our Fears." The exhibit features artwork from Julie Elman's "Fear Project."  Elman has created a series of more than 125 works of art depicting fears, based on interviews with others. The phobias depicted range from commonly shared fears such as fear of failure or death, to very personal fears such as a fear of centipedes or fears surrounding various diseases.

Read and see more about this innovative project on-line and join us to check it out in person.  "Drawing on Our Fears" will be at the Coburn Gallery from October 31 through November 22.  The opening reception on Halloween Day will begin at 4:30 p.m. and end at 6:30 p.m. Yes, there will be prizes, so plan your costumes now!

Coburn Gallery's current exhibition "Variable Vessels" runs through October 26 and features a collection of ceramics curated by artist and AU alumnus Matt Schiemann.
