The SRO Photo Gallery at the Texas Tech School of Art has selected Lori Hepner of McKeesport, PA, for one of its solo artist exhibition slots during the Spring 2011 exhibition schedule. The exhibit will be shown in the SRO Photo Gallery at the Texas Tech School of Art from April 11 – May 8, 2011.
Hepner’s series, Status Symbols, visually presents Twitter updates in a study of identity and social networking. Photographing custom made hardware which visually outputs text, Hepner creates abstract visualizations of users’ updates concerning openness and censorship in the digital world.
Hepner is currently an assistant professor of Integrative Arts at Penn State University, Greater Allegheny Campus, McKeesport, PA. She holds an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, and exhibits both nationally and internationally.
The art building is located at 2802 18th Street (near the corner of 18th Street and Flint Avenue, just east of the architecture building on the Texas Tech campus). Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. The galleries are closed on university holidays.
On Mondays through Fridays, visitor parking is available for $1.20 per hour in the small lot adjacent to the art building and on the fourth floor of the Flint Avenue Parking Facility. Parking is free on weekends. Admission is free.
The exhibitions, speakers and related programs at the Texas Tech University School of Art are made possible, in part, by generous grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation. Additional support comes from cultural activities fees administered through the College of Visual & Performing Arts.
