Event Description

An art exhibition focusing on Internet culture of the past decade will open at the Drury on C-Street Gallery on Friday, March 3 with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. “Meme-Ography” will feature artistic interpretations of some of the Internet’s most notable memes, a community engagement meme board, and a timeline of Internet phenomena from 2007-2017. The Internet has cultivated its own unique cultural influence. The result is a society in which memes have become not just a form of entertainment and comedic expression, but also a statement of our opinion as a society on what counts as art, from what can be used to make a statement on topics as mundane as the “Thanksgiving Clapback” to more pressing topics like the United States political climate. The Drury on C-Street Gallery is located at 233 E. Commercial Street. The opening reception is free to the public with food provided by Café Cusco. “Meme-Ography” was conceptualized by Arts Administration students Hannah Beckmann and Tulley Beard. The exhibit will run through March 24. Gallery viewing hours after the opening reception will be 11 to 2 p.m. on Mondays, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 to 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
