Starting Monday, MU’s George Caleb Bingham Gallery will host “Farm Story: A Place of Belonging,” a thesis exhibition by master’s student Joleen Goff.
Goff’s work was influenced by her experiences on her grandparents’ farm in southeastern Kansas, according to information about her from the gallery. It includes a series of silk-screened and painted canvas squares hung on a clothesline that show day-to-day life on the farm.
Her work “interprets the landscape and farm imagery into a visual narrative,” a release from the gallery said. Pieces presented in the exhibition show the color and composition of the fields from the change of seasons.
The exhibit will run through Nov. 5. The Bingham Gallery is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is in the Fine Arts Building at Hitt Street and University Avenue.
Former schools honor Floyd
University of Missouri system President Elson Floyd accepted two honors earlier this month, both from his former schools, said Joe Moore, spokesman for the system.
Floyd received the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s distinguished alumnus award on Oct. 12.
He also received a distinguished alumnus award from his former high school, Darlington School, in Rome, Ga.
