'Personal Space' at Denison Museum

"Personal Space" is the subject of a new exhibition featuring five New York City-based artists, opening at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17 at the Denison Museum, 240 West Broadway.

The exhibition, curated by Tommy White, Denison University assistant professor of studio art, explores the fragility of the human body, utopian and dystopian realities/fantasies, vulnerability, fear, anxiety and desire.

The featured artists, Jennifer Paige Cohen, Dani Leventhal, Yasue Maetake, Ohad Meromi and Jennifer Nuss, exhibit multi-media work ranging from modestly scaled drawings to large sculptures and video.

The museum is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Sarah Baker at 740-587-6255 or visit denisonmuseum.org.
