MFA Alum, Susan Dessel’s show opens November 18

Artist susan c. dessel’s crystal clear focuses on the symbol that accompanies emergency workers,
showing it as the fragile protection that keeps them safe and announces their good intentions.

What we see, however, is a broken icon and it is not familiar. We are asked to consider this symbol
in the light of our linked humanity increasingly expressed around the globe through social networking.

Through the engagement of the public in the creation of this work, the installation gives voice to the strength
of our shared need for shelter without disparaging our differences. (Exhibit information below)
