Ley Lines: Intersecting Conversations

February 7 – May 2, 2015

Friends Gallery

leyline1 leylines

Ley Lines are the hypothetical or actual alignment of geographically or historically important places in the landscape, such as sacred sites, monuments, and ridgelines. The naming of this exhibition, Ley Lines: Intersecting Conversations, references the aligning of imagery to written response, which generates new ways of thinking about art and literature as a basis for humanist experience, dialogue, conversation, and reflection. The exhibition presents the work of artists, each of which has been paired with a writer for a literary response. Curated by H.L. Hix, UW Professor of Philosophy, the exhibition is accompanied by his recent publication by Wilfrid Laurier University Press (2015).
  • Funded in part by the MFA Program in Creative Writing, Wyoming Humanities Council, Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research, and FMC Corporation.
