January 6 through February 28, 2003

In this wide range of media - video, photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, and notebooks - artists explore the theme of walking as an experience and/or as a metaphor. Informed by their own physical experience, as well as rich examples from literature and art history, these artists focused on "the walk" as a means of commenting on human agency, politics, geography and history . To introduce or to remind the public about the literal nature of walking, Gordon Chalmers, Associate Professor of Physical Education, Health and Recreation, assisted the Western Gallery in making an enticing video for the gallery's entrance.
