IU Northwest Gallery for Contemporary Art Hosts Bernard Williams Exhibit

The IU Northwest Gallery for Contemporary Art will host Bernard Williams' exhibit "Wood, Words and Lines" from Nov. 7th- Dec. 9th in Savannah Center. A reception will be held for Williams on Nov. 17th from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. in the gallery.

Indiana University Northwest students and the community are encouraged to participate in an upcoming hands-on exhibit lead by the Chicago artist. Students and community members will be able to work directly with the artist and be present for his discussions on the exhibit throughout the installation.

Using his words as symbols made of plywood with matte, black paint, Williams plans on utilizing a variety of words from different cultures and forming them into one sculpture to symbolize America. "It is an experimental work that talks about, and asks questions of, culture and history," said Williams. "It plays with ideas of sculpture and space, and allows for a collaborative interaction with community and students."

Participants will be able to help Williams create this installation piece on-site in the IU Northwest Gallery for Contemporary Art, Savannah Center.
