MTSU’s second art exhibition of 2012, “H x W x D,” will feature regional artists Kristina Arnold, Ron Lambert and Jackson Martin in the University’s Todd Gallery from Feb. 7 to March 1.
“The artists unite to create an exhibition that explores materials and spatial relationships through media such as, glass, metal, cloth and soil,” explained gallery secretary Eric Snyder. “Collectively, their work challenges perceptions of the body and its environment by creating sculptural works that move beyond object and act as environment.”
Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor will help MTSU celebrate its Centennial year during a special visit on Wednesday, Feb. 8, as part of the University’s renowned Windham Lecture Series.
