“Strangers in Class. Gazing Across the Economic Divide"
Sculpture by John Magnan

Sculptor John Magnan’s thoughtful and superbly crafted objects and installation prove that it is possible to marry high art to social concerns without a dilution of either. These works touch on blue-collar economic struggle, the digital divide, abject poverty and other issues, and the refinement of the work makes it resonate far beyond finger wagging.

"Utopia Lives: Symbolic Aboriginal Art from Australia"

Aboriginal art is based on important ancient stories (Jukurrpa) and symbols centered on ‘the Dreamtime’ – the period in which Indigenous people believe the world was created. These paintings are big and bold and represent stories that have been handed down through generations. David Glenn, a Ph.D. candidate in Public Health at UConn, shares some of the paintings that have captured both his eye and imagination.

Out of the Frame: Alternative Arts of the 1980s
Featuring selections from the Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center

On the fringe of the American art world, writers, musicians and artists of the 1980s sought alternative spaces in which to conduct their art-making. Presented by Archives & Special Collections, the exhibit highlights works of the Dial-a-Poem movement and cyberpunk writers, memorabilia and recordings documenting punk rock music and offset printed artists’ books of the period.
