The Politics of Portraits
July 18, 2016 to October 16, 2016
The Nesse Gallery contains a wide range of portraits that asks patrons to consider the ideas such as authority, beauty, and mimesis. The exhibit contains a defaced portrait of Kathrine Bill Whitney painted by O.V. Shaffer. The painting hung in Whitney Residence Hall and was likely defaced as part of protests and anti-authoritarian sentiment during the 1960's.
