In an effort to continually expose our students to various professional artists, the EA Visual Arts Department was thrilled to have photographer Will Harris showcase pieces from his visual family memoir, You can call me Nana, in the Crawford Campus Center Gallery.

Current Show: You can call me Nana
Running from Jan. 17 to Feb. 16, You can call me Nana features photographs from Will Harris' family memoir of the same name. Harris' book, which uses photography to tell a story of the artist's grandmother who suffered from dementia in the later years of her life, is "at times both haunting and lighthearted." His show will include "a mix of photographs including family archives with altered images, collage, and new photographs including views inside the multi-generational family home." Harris holds an MFA in Photography & Integrated Media from Lesley University, has exhibited in the United States, India, and Denmark, and in 2015, had a residency at Arteles Creative Center in Finland.
