Michael Sharkey Visit & Archives of Hair Exhibit

In collaboration with the Lamont Gallery, the Class of 1945 Library is hosting a reception and talk by Artist-in-Residence Michael Sharkey on Sunday February 16th at 6:30pm.  Members of the PEA community are invited to join us for the Exonian Portraits Reception in the Library Commons where Michael Sharkey and students will discuss portraiture, representation and queer visibility.  A selection of Sharkey’s works will be on display.

Elizabeth Kostina ’20 and Head of Archives & Special Collections Magee Lawhorn collaborate on library exhibit installation.

Prior to Sharkey’s visit the Library will also host a reception on Tuesday February 11th from 8-9pm in the Library Commons for senior Elizabeth Kostina’s two part exhibit Headlines for Hair and Hair & the Archives.  These archival exhibits are part of Kostina’s larger senior project Hairlines.  The reception at the Library immediately follows the Hairlines opening reception that will take place from 7-8pm in the Academy Building Foyer.
