During semester sabbatical, artist explores concepts of connectivity
"My compositions develop out of a process of call and response between states of disruption and integration."
Jordan Acker Anderson, associate professor
Jordan Acker Anderson, an associate professor in the School of Arts and Design, is displaying work created during her semester-long sabbatical at the Marian Art Gallery at Mount Mary University.
The exhibit, titled "The Day Continues to Return," invites viewers to reflect upon peace and interconnectedness. Anderson offers her work as an invitation to contemplate inner peace as it relates to global affairs and daily existence, she said.
"My compositions develop out of a process of call and response between states of disruption and integration," she said.
