TAG: You’re It

 
A new exhibition of digital photographs by Susan Scranton Dawson installed at the University of Scranton’s Loyola Science Center won’t be finished until you’ve made your mark on them. A “starter event” held on Friday, Feb. 21 welcomed regional artists such as Earl Lehman and John Bromberg, English professor Dr. Stephen Whittaker, WVIA’s Erika Funke, and numerous students among other special guests to begin layering text and image in acyclic marker across sheets of Plexiglas covering nine large, abstract composite works by Susan Scranton Dawson displayed throughout the building. The interactive installation is presented by the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Art and Music Program, and The Hope Horn Gallery as part of a campus and community celebration of the 125th anniversary of The University of Scranton.
 
Students, faculty, staff, and guests visiting the campus are encouraged to contribute to the pieces throughout the semester until May 16. A public reception featuring a discussion of the ongoing transformation of TAG: Works by Susan Scranton Dawson and You will be held on April 4.
