The exhibition will seek to create an understanding of prejudice by taking a look at red hair and the worldwide fascination surrounding it. As a result, "Red Hairing: The History and Myth of Red Hair" will converse with visitors in a humorous and frank manner about the unique role redheads have played throughout history. They will discover history through the lives of redheads and learn how different cultures have worshiped, persecuted, idealized and overly sexualized redheads. By using red hair as a lens, the exhibition will subtly address the larger issues of discrimination, prejudice, racism, and sexism that permeate across the globe. Visitors will walk away from their journey having learned what it means to be 'red' and hopefully engaged in a global discussion about the larger implications presented in the exhibition. Read Less

My Grandparents, who were painters and craftspeople,influenced my interest in design at an early age. I have taken that interest and transformed itinto a study of physical space and the relationship humans have within thosespaces. I am influenced by all beautifuldesign, from Mother Nature to architecture, and tend to transform classicaldesign into a modern aesthetic. To learnnew ways of expressing design, I experiment with many different mediumsincluding painting, silk-screening, and photography.
