"Kill the Body and the Head will Follow"

Featuring work from senior artists Lauren Nelson & Heather Jackson

These artists are both dealing with ideas about pain, hospitals, and medicine; However, they work in very different ways. Heather's work is dealing with the mind and how the world views mental illness through installation, video, and performance, while Lauren's work is about the body and how we experience pain through printmaking and other various techniques with paper.

Visitors arrive and are able to interact with Heather's entrance installation.

Adam Scott and Sarah Graves perform.
