Conway — There’s a new exhibit at UCA Downtown. The show is called Welcome Home and the artist is milkdadd.
Gallery hours are Monday – Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and closed for private events. milkdadd will be on display until July 29, 2019.
Welcome Home is a collection of work exploring the world of social media and the developed sense of security that comes with it.
Using digital sketches with an added layer of traditional medium, the artist wrestles with this phenomenon that has transformed human interaction, bringing us all together while simultaneously pushing us apart.
About the exhibit, milkdadd said, “We present the best version of ourselves to our online-audience, but as society evolves with the visual nature of platforms such as Instagram as the vehicle of change, the line blurs between our social media presence and our in-person selves.”
There will be a reception for that artist on Friday, July 19 from 5-7 pm at UCA Downtown.
