A joint art show by Eric Mandeville and McKenzie Stuetzel makes a powerful statement, but only for a short time — so be sure to see it. By utilizing imagery from street art in contrasting colors, their show explores the idea of living in society, but outside of its boundaries. Mandeville will use a projection of a time-lapse video of the creation of his mural, Occupy Your Street, in the hope of changing the thinking of street artists from punks to social commentators. Stuetzel has created a world of fading and bold geometry and chaos she calls Merge Visible.
Mandeville and Stuetzel: Through Friday. Free. UMass Amherst Student Union Gallery, on the south side of the Student Union building. umass.edu/events/exhibit-occupy-your-street.
