Jenifer K. Wofford: Limning the Liminal

Sunday, March 24, 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Gleeson Library - GL Thacher Gallery Art Exhibit

Free and open to the public.

This work by interdisciplinary artist Jenifer K Wofford returns to notions of the liminal—the threshold between worlds or ideas—to express the intercultural, creative logic of a multi-ethnic Filipina-American raised in Hong Kong, the UAE, Malaysia, and California. With no fixed points in her background, Wofford’s visually crisp artwork exudes imagination, humor, and a healthy appreciation for the absurd.
