Jessica Harvey (Photography ’09) is featured in the Chicago Tribune. Her exhibition, Arrows of the Dawn, is open at Jolliet College’s Laura A. Sprague Art Gallery in Joliet. The exhibit, which investigates experiments in utopian living through the colony, is abstractly based on Jane Byrd McCall Whitehead, the community’s under-recognized matriarch and her relationship to nature, spirituality and the failed vision she had for herself and her family. “They wanted to start this artist utopia out in Woodstock, N.Y. It failed in the regards that it never became self-sustaining,” Harvey said.
The exhibition is open through February 10, 2017.
