Known as a writer, journalist, an avid folklorist, Henry W. Shoemaker wrote several myths and legends of central Pennsylvania aiming to inspire civic action and preservation of land and native cultures. Although many of his stories have been debunked, in this exhibition artist Hannah Epstein returns to the folkloris’s sense of narrative as a rally force and tool envisioning the school’s sports mascot as an environmental crusader. Epstein’s textiles, digital video, and experimental games advocate for a deeper understanding of storytelling and its crucial role in the construction of reality.
