KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Art Museum & Galleries presents "Invisible Body, Conspicuous Mind" from Jan. 27-March 3 in the Art Gallery in the Sturgis Library. The free exhibition features contemporary Romanian art and will begin with an opening reception on Jan. 27 from 5-8 p.m.
This exhibition seeks to answer the question: How does a citizen become a non-entity? With choices from the collection of Ambassador Nicholas and Jenny Taubman, the exhibition features contemporary Romanian art that visually confronts issues of identity, providing a window into a unique post-Communist bloc country. It becomes an evocative reflection of life and culture around the world.
The exhibition is a "Year of Romania" event and is guest curated by Lara Taubman.
The Art Gallery is located on the lower level of the Sturgis Library and is open 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7-9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday evenings and 1-4 p.m. on Saturday. For more information on the Art Museum and Galleries at KSU, visit here.
