Museum of Art
August 30 – October 15
Reception, Thursday, September 7, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
The thirteen contemporary artists in this exhibition accept the framework that masculinity is made, fashioned, and modified generation to generation. Selected works of art explore the artifice of masculinity through themes such as strength, desire, and intimacy while posing the question: What does it mean to be made masculine or to make one’s own masculinity?
Guest curator, Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Curator, Fitchburg Art Museum.
Supported by the Valerie Wilcox England ’54 and Frederick J. England Fund.
