Two-dimensional prints and three-dimensional ceramic works invite viewers to contemplate the expressive, unique, and timeless visual qualities of the human figure, and the idea of humanity.

The exhibit includes ceramic artists Jim Bowling, Sarah Hahn, Kyle & Kelly Phelps, Tara Polansky, Richard Swanson, Paul Wandless, and Janis Mars Wunderlich along with prints from Ohio Wesleyan’s permanent collection by Leonard Baskin, Peter Blake, Wanda Ewing, Dorothy Getz, Alberto Giacometti, Toshijiro (Nenjiro) Inagaki, Karl Kasten, Oskar Kokoschka, Kathe Kollwitz, Georges Rouault, Arthur Segal, Sadao Watanabe, and Janis Mars Wunderlich.
