Gallery Walks

UAY artists are featured in Gallery Walks in various venues throughout downtown Iowa City, and in the Gallery in the Youth Center.

On March 5 – Aril 9, 2010 UAY will be featuring the work of 10 young artists in a collaborative show entitled, “Clothing as Protection.”  This multimedia show will present altered clothing pieces as well as assemblage, photographs, and paintings that explore the way in which clothing acts as a metaphorical shield, protecting the body from other people’s perceptions, assumptions and stereotypes.  Several of the artists present work that imagines the role clothing could play in a world where physical protection was necessary for survival.
