Artist's Reception - Lost Exhibit (Campus Events)
5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

  • Location:
  • Whitaker Gallery in Whitaker Campus Center

  • An artist’s reception for the Exhibit "Lost" will take place Sept. 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gallery, which is open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.


    A trio of sculptures constructed from old technology items and timeworn advertising fliers will be on display Sept. 4-28 in the Whitaker Campus Center Gallery at Hood College.


    Baltimore artist Ryan Murray incorporates retro video game consoles, a space helmet-shaped television showing a performance video and a series of old fliers posted by individuals searching for lost items in his exhibit entitled “Lost.” He uses these objects to evoke in the viewer a sense of nostalgia, sorrow for a recent-but-bygone past and a sense of hope for new opportunities for growth.


    Murray, an assistant professor of electronic media and film at Towson University, earned a bachelor of fine arts from Carnegie Mellon University and a master of fine arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He has exhibited in galleries, museums and film festivals across the United States and Canada.
