Conspicuous Consumption Opening Reception

RAINN in the Atrium

“RAINN Day is RAINN’s annual campaign to raise awareness and fight against sexual violence on college campuses.” In the atrium are many umbrellas artfully decorated by students.  Besure to stop by look at the artwork, read the literature, and think about how you can prevent sexual violence.

Atrium – Jason Lanka

Jason Lanka’s massive drawings and photos are now on display in the Atrium space in the Union.  They will be up for several weeks.  Here are some images of his work and some information about his work.


Boundary; something that marks or fixes a limit (as of territory). The line that divides one area of land from another.

The space at which our culture comes in contact with the environment inspires my creative work. Much can be understood about the nature of how our society defines its role and place within the natural world by the observation of this boundary.
I seek to address the demarcation of our species’ relationship with the land. Am I of the land or in the land? Each piece made within a lineage of exploration has set out to answer this question. Our identity as people and a nation are so often defined by our place within our environment and how we view our relationship with the natural world.
