FACEing Race - Spring 2010
Visiting artist E. Patrick Johnson (Chair of the Performance Studies Department at Northwestern University) led students and staff in a three-day performance workshop. The workshop resulted in participants performing monologues concerning issues of race, gender, and identity in the 21st century as part of an interactive artistic installation. Another main feature of the installation was visual art and poetry on the same theme, created by students in the courses of Professors Fennell, Gillespie, Long, Martincich, McCallum, Peterson, Ponnuswami, and Williams. E. Patrick Johnson closed the event with a performance of his one-man play, Pouring Tea.
