An exhibit of the visual, video, musical and auditory art of about 50 Miami Valley artists on the topic “Living in Divided States” is on display at the Herndon Gallery of the Antioch College campus. The exhibit, which re-opens on Jan. 7, is open to the public weekdays from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 1-4 p.m.

Exhibit organizers asked artists to respond to the statement, “We are a nation divided and deeply entrenched. What does a post-election America look like? Where do we even begin?”

Artists include faculty and students from Antioch College, and arts faculty from the University of Dayton, Stivers School for the Arts, Sinclair Community College and Ohio State University, among others.

A performance and conversation with Furaha Henry-Jones of Sinclair and Umvikeli G. Scott Jones, Glenna Jennings, Issa Randall and others will take place on Friday, Jan. 13, at 6:30 at the gallery.

See a more detailed story on the exhibit in the Jan. 5 Yellow Springs News.
