Nancy Grace Horton is a photography-based artist who embraces both analog and digital techniques to create bold narrative fragments informed by her background in photojournalism. Her MrMrs Series taps into her interest in gender and culture and visually explores men who dress as women. This project has evolved into a collaborative exhibition involving the university community from October 1 - January 6 with continued opportunities for campus participation throughout the installation. The community is being integrated into this site-specific installation by participating in creative paper doll making inspired by cultural dress codes and personal identity; sharing gender-related stories via video and written as well as participating in photographic portraits for the gallery show.FMI | cgurley@une.edu | www.nancygracehorton.com
