    Breaking Prairie: Sculpture and Installation by Andrea Thompson Full Details [X]
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;">Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, September 15, 5:00 P.M.<br /> Exhibit on view: September 15&ndash;October 20<br /> How do we value the land? In the early 20th century, vast areas of prairie grasslands in the American Great Plains were converted to farmland, forever altering the landscape. The bushels-per-acre accounting of agriculture came at the cost of native plant species, which are superior at capturing carbon, preventing erosion, and supporting a thriving ecosystem. The hubris of westward expansion becomes evident when contrasted with scenes from the day-to-day reality of farming life. Sculptor and installation artist Andrea Thompson explores these themes in Breaking Prairie, a new artwork series that questions how we measure the worth of wild and cultivated landscapes.<br /> </span> <div><span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><br /> </span></div> <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963084">Click here to RSVP</a>&nbsp;</span>

    In Control: Cross Stitch and Mixed Media by Katrina Majkut Full Details [X]
    5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    <span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12px;">Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, October 27, 5:00 P.M.<br /> Exhibit on view: October 27&ndash;December 21<br /> <div>&nbsp;</div> The cross-stitched works in the series In Control reject the stereotypical domestic functionality of samplers. Historically, embroidery prepared women for marriage. Samplers represented domestic skill levels and specific cultural and religious values to potential husbands who sought a woman with the right skills to establish a household: make clothes, darn socks. Cross-stitch was used to advertise and represent womanhood, wifedom, and motherhood&mdash;but bodily functions, autonomy and diverse lifestyles were not part of this textile practice. The &ldquo;domestic craft&rdquo; of In Control attempts to directly challenge this by attempting to stitch all products related to women&rsquo;s health and needs with a fully comprehensive, bipartisan, and medically honest approach.<br /> <br /> <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963170">Click here to RSVP</a></span>

    <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;">Visiting Artist Kate Gilbert will lead students through a guided meditation into our own inner room where we can confront our worries and fears, and then let them go. Following the meditation we&rsquo;ll create a mandala of peace using violent and disturbing images collected from print media.
