Time: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Art Exhibition “Confuse the Issues: Art, Text, and Identity”
Schmucker Hall Main Gallery, 300 N. Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA

Confuse the Issues: Art, Text, and Identity features text-based works by prominent contemporary artists of color who demonstrate the power of language. Words not only are central to the compositions of each photograph, sculpture, and print, but the text also provides an expression of identity, a marginalized narrative, a reflection on history, or a call to action.

Featuring works by artists: Elizabeth Catlett, Deborah Dancy, Nekisha Durrett, the Guerrilla Girls, Glenn Ligon, Carl Pope, Jr., Faith Ringgold, Hank Willis Thomas, and Carrie Mae Weems

This exhibition is supported in part by Art Bridges and co-sponsored by the following departments and programs at Gettysburg College: Africana Studies, English, Public Policy, and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Don’t miss Nekiska Durrett’s In-Person Gallery Talk on October 28, 5 p.m with a reception to follow until 7 p.m.


Admission to the gallery is free and open to all.
