May / August Exhibit
Lightbird

Maya Paris’ light sculpture will be on display until August 20.  Enter the spirit of the sculpture by wearing the free costume and wings.  Ponder the significance of musical eggs.  Dance with a dandelion clock.  It’s all good fun.

March / April Exhibit
Women’s History Month: St Isabella’s Isle

This immersive space was created by Indea Vaher; it gives visitors the impression of visiting an African American seacoast community in the early part of the 20th century. Through 3D recreation, videos, music and interactive exhibits, visitors learn about the rice-growing culture of the South Carolina and Georgia Sea Islands.  The exhibit closes April 15.

March 8 is International Women’s Day

On Minerva, you can chain yourself to a fence to protest for the vote while listening to a rousing feminist anthem, free to download from Gerri Gribi:  http://creativefolk.com/free.whm.html

Or, if you’d rather chain yourself up in a more appropriate place, IM Ellie Brewster for a full-perms copy of Paderborn’s suffragist exhibit.
