The University of Maine at Augusta Danforth Gallery will have a new exhibit, Work Ethic of a Chimney Sweep, created by University of Cincinnati Art Professor, Ryan Mulligan, on display December 3rd through January 18th.

The exhibit is an aesthetic and cultural study of the Disney film Mary Poppins which explores ideas including “Capitalism in the Interwar Period of London” and “Allegorical study of job placement and re-skilling labor” manifested through generating props, drawings, massive maps, diagrams, picket signs, and copious visual output that will overtake the gallery space.

There will be an artist talk and reception on December 6th at 1pm, in the Danforth gallery. You can also visit http://www.autobiomagical.com/ to find out more about the artist.

The Danforth Gallery is located in Jewett Hall on the University of Maine at Augusta campus.  The gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 7:00pm, and on Fridays from 8:30am to 5:30pm.
