— Sean Hovendick, an Army veteran that currently works at Sage College, created short, provocative videos that look at contradictions in gender politics.

The third floor exhibit is generally on display for six months before another exhibit rotates in.

“The last exhibition was ‘Second Nature.’ It was about the development of humans and non-mechanically engineered things — for a lack of a better term, things from nature,” said Greenwood.

When exhibits are put together, they are often created to have a flow from one artist to the next, but figuring out that progression is a fluid process.

“Every exhibit design comes together differently. Some of the artists we group together by the way their works looks together,” said Greenwood.

With the theme for this exhibit being “Body Language,” Greenwood said she feels that it’s something everyone can enjoy and understand.

“Looking at the human figure is something I think everyone can relate to and find similarities to their self in,” said Greenwood.
