American Mortal

Featuring the work of Becky Alley and Melissa Vandenberg

Sept. 16-Oct. 14, 2016

Becky Alley and Melissa Vandenberg create works of commemoration set within the context of United States politics. With the fever pitch of presidential elections just weeks away, the two artists jump into the political fray with sincerity and satire as they try to untangle ideas of nostalgia, gender and the homeland.
