Opening Doors to the World: BLISS

Opening Doors to the World: BLISS Session

Join us as Janice Glowski speaks about the "Opening Doors to the World" program, its three-year history at Otterbein, and the upcoming artists and exhibits the program will be featuring.  February 7, 12pm, in the Lower Level Learning Lab.

Janice will include information and background about the artists and their exhibits, including:

  • Another Place: Images and Stories from a Refugee's World
    • Another Place juxtaposes the storytelling prowess of Tariq Tarey's photographs with the visually evocative poems of Ladan Osman ('06).  Through the work of these award-winning creatives, who both came to the United States as refugees from Somalia, the exhibition moves the viewer beyond sweeping generalizations and mind-numbing refugee counts into dialogue with personal lives.
  • Stories From Life: A Sufi-Inspired Journey of Past and Present
    • Originally from Sudan, Columbus-based artist Mohamed Hamid, known to his friends as Bakri Aldogari, presents paintings inspired by the many cultures and traditions he has encountered.  He combines traditional motifs, scripts, architectural forms, and patterns to create vivid landscapes and cityscapes.  Through robust yet subtle layering, the paintings invite exploration as they play with the revealing and concealing of past and present realities.

Be sure to join us!  Put February 7th, 12pm on your calendar today! INST Approved!
