Kinship: An Exhibition Of and For Animals Like Us

January 13 - February 10, 2012

Kinship has been curated in conjunction with Calvin College's Wake Up Weekend, an annual animal advocacy event organized by faculty of Calvin College. Over the years the artists assembled for this exhibition have produced works concerned with the welfare of our planet and those we share it with. While many of the pieces in this show do not speak overtly to issues of animal rights, all serve to illustrate how deeply we connect to our non-human relatives.

The exhibition was curated by GVSU Art and Design Professor Brett Colley, and features the works of 15 concerned, compassionate artists, including Sue Coe, Jenny Pope, Adam Wolpa, Mike Guyette, Christina Mrozik, Shanna Shearer, Emily Gray Koehler, Kirsten Strom, Brett Colley, Ryan Hill, Tim Oliphant, Margaret Reed, Jenny Schneider, Richard Gibson and Linsey Tankersley.
