Sara Zak’s “Forget-Me-Nots” will be on display throughout the month of mid-December in the Peter A. and Mary Lou Vogt Gallery in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis, SJ, Library. The multi-sensory installation is based on Zak’s pilgrimage to the crash site of her father’s F-111 fighter jet. Three years ago, she held an exhibition at this gallery entitled “MISHAP Contained.” The paintings and prints analyzed the crash sites of many F-111 jets. “Forget-Me-Nots” is a more contemplative healing experience. In response to climbing her dad’s mountain in Scotland, Zak’s work deals not only with trauma, but with healing. “Forget-Me-Nots” is an homage to people dealing with PTSD and loss.
This exhibition opens on Monday, November 11. Join the Fine Arts Department for a reception on Friday, November 15 from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m. “Forget-Me-Nots” will be on display through Friday, December 13.
