Nittany Lion: Eco-Mascot by Hannah Epstein

Art Show, Textiles
The HUB-Robeson Galleries present Nittany Lion: Eco- Mascot, a solo exhibition by Hannah Epstein. A free, public reception with light refreshments will be held on Thursday, September 12 from 6 – 8 p.m. Epstein, also known as hanski, describes herself as “a feminist folklorist of the Internet Age” who in past works has created hooked rugs that depicted Internet memes and monsters. For the HUB Gallery, Epstein’s textiles envision the University’s sports mascot as an environmental crusader and supportive friend to the Earth who is having a 90’s tabloid style meltdown. The works in this exhibition were created during a residency at the Textile Arts Center in New York. Epstein earned a BA from Memorial University of Newfoundland (2009) and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon (2017). Her work has been included in exhibitions in Canada and the United States since 2011. She lives and works in Toronto and Los Angeles. The galleries are open daily 10 – 4 p.m.
