Touchstones of Joy: Art, Sculpture + Jewelry
As we mark the 150th anniversary of women at Yale, and the 50th anniversary of the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Yale Arts Alumni League finds many reasons to celebrate. Join us as Dorian Webb, ’91 BR launches the first two phases of “The Marriage Project”, her reflections on aspects of the centuries-old institution in 2 and 3-dimensional works of art, and includes Dorian’s one of a kind, and made to order jewelry. Through paintings and drawings, "Others" addresses the paradox of marriage through representational and autobiographical paintings of protea flowers. "Displacement/ Dislocation" instead, references the physical aspect of marriage via sculpture: the act of leaving a world you are comfortable in, and adapting to a new, unfamiliar terrain. Solemn topics on their face, both explorations are multi-layered, nuanced and electrified by color.
