HUB-Robeson Galleries Announces Fall 2021 Exhibition Schedule

The HUB-Robeson Galleries announced its fall 2021 exhibition schedule earlier this month.

This fall’s exhibits will feature themes covering topics like wild birds, Persian literary and visual arts, and more.

The HUB Gallery will feature Bronx-based artist Rosemarie Fiore’s self-titled exhibition through January 30, 2022. The collection will include art from the past 10 years of Fiore’s career.

Fiore is known for using household technologies like lawnmowers and floor polishers to create spirited works of art. She worked with Penn State students in the School of Visual Arts to develop unique tools that will be used in an upcoming performance on the HUB Lawn.

From August 21 to November 20, an exhibition titled “Wind Spirits” by artists Tatiana Arocha, Deirdre Murphy, and Rachel Sydlowski will be featured in Art Alley in the HUB.

This exhibit displays the power and delicacy of wild birds and the relationship between humans and the natural world.

Through January 30, 2022, the exhibit “Alter” by artist Kiana Honarmand will be displayed in the HUB’s exhibition cases.

Honarmand’s work transforms the poem “Gift” by Iranian poet Forough Farrokhzad into colorful patterns to display the rich Persian history of concealing literary works and commentary into visual art.

Penn State’s Wildlife and Fisheries program collaborated with Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center to create the exhibits called the “Lost Bird Project” and “Why Biodiversity Matters.” These projects will be displayed in the HUB’s Exhibition Cases through January 26, 2022.

Artist Todd McGrain created the “Lost Bird Project” to recognize the five most recently extinct North American birds. Five sculptural monuments will memorialize the birds to serve as a reminder of lost biodiversity and the importance of preventing further extinction.

The HUB Gallery is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The university’s COVID-19 mask mandate will be enforced to protect students, employees, and visitors.
