This exhibition represents the initial explorations and research of this group of artists over the last two months in the city of Hornell. The projects document observations, provides platforms for discussion, and offer means for interaction. They signify the process of getting acquainted with a new place and provide an introduction of these artists to the community. The exhibition will feature work by Dan Totten, Reese Peacock, B. Sean Corbin, Yvonne Harden, and Mike Downie.

Space and Place is a course offered by the Sculpture/Dimensional Studies Division of the School of Art and Design. The class spends the semester working in the Hornell Community Arts Center, conducting research around and about the City of Hornell., and creating events that engage the community.

This is the first event of the semester. The second will be the Hornell Art Walk on Saturday, May 3, and will feature projects at various locations throughout the city.
