Sheila Pepe uses feminist and craft traditions to investigate received notions about the production of canonical artwork and the artist's relationship to museum displays.
LJ Roberts creates textile works that are deeply driven by activism and entwined with critical queer/transgender politics, feminist histories, and the on-going AIDS epidemic.
niv Acosta is a post-modern dancer and choreographer whose work, including "the denzel series," addresses personal histories and the passage of time. 
Hunter O'Hanian (moderator), Executive Director, The College Art Association
