The Sport of Ecology

This month the Miami University Middletown Campus Galleria features the work of Emily Moorhead in The Sport of Ecology.  The sculpture and collage drawings that line the walls point to the ecological dilemma of finding food and shelter for survival and how this process effects our environment.   The exhibition will be on display from October 1st to November 5th open during normal Johnston Hall Hours of Monday through Thursday 8am to 7pm and Friday’s 8am to 2pm.  The closing reception will be held on Thursday, November 3rd 2 to 4pm.
