Comfort Zones: The Crossroads of Urban & Rural

Artist Panel

A Dialogue with The Artists: Comfort Zones: The Crossroads of Urban & Rural
Thursday, November 1, 5:50-7:05 p.m.
Artists, Eldridge Bagley and Mary Phelan. Moderator-Dana Saulnier Professor, Department of Art, Miami University

This conversational presentation will explore works by Chicago-based artist Mary Phelan and self-taught artist Eldridge Bagley, presenting two seemingly disparate environments. On the surface, the geographic locations of the urban fabric and the rural landscape appear to have little in common. But on a deeper level, we begin to see connections that show how  a sense of place can exist in parallel. The dialogue with the artists is moderated by Dana Saulnier, Professor of Painting at Miami University.

Co-sponsored with Contemporary Art Forum, Department of Art, Miami University

Exhibition Lecture

Understanding the Urban-Rural Divide
Wednesday, November 14, 5:30 p.m.
Steven Conn, Professor, Department of History, Miami University

Since the election of 2016 the urban-rural divide has received a great deal of media attention. In fact, that divide has been a central part of American society for a long time. This talk will explore where it came from, what defines it and what it all means today.
