October 9 – December 9, 2017

In collaboration with the Department of Philosophy, this exhibition adds visual layers
to the largest of questions – how we assign meaning to human existence.

Printmakers and social practice artists Michelle Wilson and Anne Beck
will lead community participants in sewing the outline
of Dürer’s 1515 woodcut The Rhinoceros, to call attention to the three
remaining Northern White rhinoceri. The project has brought
“participatory sewing circles and papermaking happenings” to
communities across the United States, and the end result will be
the creation of three life-size watermarks in handmade paper.”
