Creature Comforts, Park’s Winter 2018 exhibition will feature Baltimore-based furniture artists:

Sarah Marriage

Park School Students

The exhibition asks the viewer to consider how our furnishings reflect who we are as individuals, and as members of a family or community. How does design play a role in our daily living, and how does human interaction with our spaces and our furnishings impact how we view the larger world? What do the objects we live with say about us?








Diana Lee Fox '75 Artist in Residence

On Wednesday, November 8, the upper school hosted this year's Diana Lee Fox '75 Artist in Residence. FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture is an art activist collective based in Baltimore, MD.
Co-founder Hannah Brancato and studio manager, Shanti Flagg spent the day with upper school students where they presented their work at the US assembly, workshopped with students to develop statements of support, and led 25 students in creating their own quilt squares to be included in the Monument Quilt, a public activist art project created by FORCE. 

The completed quilt squares along with the statements of support are now on view in the Richman Gallery through December 8.

This work contains mature content that deals with sexual assault and contains graphic language. Please be advised that the work is appropriate for mature middle school students
and older.
