The Shore Line Project (September 25 - October 5)

ETSU is pleased to welcome filmmaker, scholar, and community media maker Liz Miller and her interactive documentary, The Shore Line Project to the Reece Museum in September 2018. The Shore Line presents a series of short documentaries, interactive maps and visualizations of the impacts of rising seas on shoreline communities around the world. The interactive materials consider the question, “what can we learn from those living on the coast, the frontline of environmental change?” Along with a two-week installation of The Shore Line Project at the Reece Museum on ETSU’s campus, Liz Miller will present a public lecture at the Reece Museum on Tuesday, September 25th, talk with ETSU students from various departments, and share insight on sustainability initiatives from her work with the Sustainability Advisory Committee at Concordia University in Montreal. Miller’s visit and the Reece Museum exhibit will be featured events as part of ETSU’s Sustainability month programming. Miller’s visit to ESTU is sponsored the Mary B. Martin School of the Arts, the Department of Sustainability, the Department of Media & Communication, and the Honors College.


FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT: Social & Politically Engaged Art (October 6 - December 14)

The 2018 6th Annual FL3TCH3R EXHIBIT is an international juried exhibit focused on socially and politically engaged art. Socially and politically engaged art has been integral in creative expression since the beginning of visual arts. This exhibition explores the current trends and trajectory in this field and these collective creative works hopefully serve as an avenue or agent for societal transformation and exposure of social and political points of view. The goal is to recognize and advance this endeavor by providing a venue for the exhibition of socially and politically engaged art. Furthermore, the exhibit's proceeds after expenses will fund the Fletcher H. Dyer Memorial Scholarship for an art and design student. Exhibition Oct. 8-Dec. 14 at the ETSU Reece Museum. Thursday, Nov. 1, 5 p.m., Juror's Talk w/David Carson - FREE, Reception & awards to follow, 6-8 p.m.
