Events Stories

Through July 26: State Fair

University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, marking Extension's centennial, will have a strong presence at the Delaware State Fair.

July 26: Food and Brew

The 11th annual Downtown Newark Food and Brew Festival will be held from 2-9 p.m., Saturday, July 26.

The exhibition highlights the visual alchemy of Maren Hassinger and Sonya Clark, whose creative agencies turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Hassinger’s primary material is the commonplace commercial box. Literal and allegorical, formal and conceptual, the boxes signal consumptive overload and containment as they express her liberatory intent: to get out of the box.

Clark works from the premise that hairdressing is the oldest textile art. Hair is both subject and medium, as are the accoutrements of hair care and hair styling. She transforms combs into carpets and tapestries and hair into portraiture.

“Boxes, Combs and Constellations” follows short residencies of Hassinger and Clark at UD in the spring of 2013.

The exhibition is curated by Julie L. McGee, curator of African American art at University Museums and associate professor of Black American studies.
