Visual Art Specialist Mark Soderstrom exhibition open at the Horace Williams House

January 29, 2021

Visual Art Specialist Mark Soderstrom’s exhibition Tertiary Measurements is now on view by appointment until February 21, 2021, at the Horace Williams House in Chapel Hill.

This exhibition focuses on the comparative perspectives between various world-views using a variety of media to create “evidential artifacts of the stories, phenomenon, historical situations, and cultural aspects they present.”

Each of the works in “Tertiary Measurements”  relates to an incident or memory that has captured the artist’s attention influenced by his ongoing interest in pseudoscience, psychology, and sociology and his quest to understand how individuals and cultures come to various beliefs and “how these perspectives are perceived from opposing paradigms.” This unique collection of created artifacts and art objects transport the viewer into a realm of world views and alternative realities which are both playful and thought provoking.

You can make an appointment on the Preservation Chapel Hill website here:

Statement from Eric C. Shiner regarding cancellation of visit to Art Department because of HB2

April 14, 2016

UPDATE: A group of Art faculty and staff have written and signed the attached letter in support of Eric Shiner’s decision.

Dear President Spellings:

Please find attached a letter of revocation re: my acceptance of the kind invitation I received from friend and colleague elin o’Hara slavick to act as this year’s visiting critic for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s graduating MFA class.

I do hope that the university takes as active a stance as possible against North Carolina House Bill 2.  Until that bill is revoked, I do not feel comfortable or safe coming to North Carolina.

Eric Shiner

PS to elin, please see my special note to you and your students at the end of my attached letter.  I apologize if my action in any way affects you or the students.
