The focus of the Women, Gender, and Creativity House Living Learning Community is to de-mystify the creative process. In this community, topics of gender, sexuality, identity, creativity, perception, and visual communication of women in the arts are explored and discussed. Texts, films, lectures, and critiques are used to encourage the development of ideas through multiple vehicles of expression including visual art, performance, and creative writing. This exhibition highlights the self-portraits, sculptures, video performances, and written works produced by the student artists during the course of the academic year, and is organized and co-curated by Natalia Yovane (Global Village Instructor) and Deborah Lee (CWAH Intern and Institute for Women’s Leadership Scholar).
The group exhibit will be on view in the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series Galleries in the Douglass Library, Rutgers University (8 Chapel Drive, New Brunswick, NJ 08901) from April 19 to May 1, 2017. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. – 10 p.m.
On Friday, April 28 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., join Douglass Residential College for the annual Douglass Global Summit that brings together diverse groups to learn about, share ideas on, and create possible solutions to global challenges.

Ludwig Global Village Living Learning Center, DRC (9 Suydam Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08901), followed by an exhibition reception in honor of the Women, Gender, and Creativity House artists from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. in the Mabel Smith Douglass Room at Douglass Library.
