Art Around You: Exhibition Tour and Artmaking Workshop
Kids age 7-10 can join staff from University Galleries and the Children’s Discovery Museum for a tour of and artmaking workshop inspired by Jess T. Dugan’s current solo exhibition, “I want you to know my story.” The exhibition presents recent photographs from Dugan’s ongoing “Every Breath We Drew” series. The artist writes, “My creative practice centers around an exploration of identity – particularly gender and sexuality – through photographic portraiture. Drawing from my experience as a queer, non-binary person, my work is motivated by an existential need to understand and express myself and to connect with others.” The exhibition title is excerpted from a creative text Dugan wrote to accompany these photographs in their newest book, “Look at me like you love me,” self-described as a “visual poem.” Additional passages from the book are installed throughout the exhibition as a poetic current flowing under the works.
