Schnormeier Gallery Presents 'Bird Closet'

MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Schnormeier Gallery is proud to exhibit “Bird Closet,” a collective of teenage artists developed from “SOIL SERIES: A Social Drawing,” which is an ongoing socially engaged artwork in Bethel, Ohio, founded by artists Francesca Fiore and MVNU alumna, Hillary Wagner.

This exhibit will open Aug. 27 and is open to the public through Sept. 28. The exhibit is distinguished by its playful, prankish nature, employing varied processes and media including collage, billboards, bird masks, and alter egos. There will be an artist reception on Sept. 7, from 6-8 p.m.

The artists featured in “Bird Closet” pursue social projects that use history as a medium to create an alternate universe for their community to reimagine their present and create a new future. Schnormeier Gallery is thrilled to share these works and discoveries with MVNU and the local community. This exhibit and all gallery events are free and open to the public.
