How to be a Misguided Miss Guide features a series of paintings that reference women’s roles in western society. By using my personal experiences as a woman, the work reflects the collective structures and systems in which I am placed. As a
mother I question my teachings and those which I have been taught. I believe in the practice of self-reflection because of the downfall that occurs when we fail to do so, and I am curious about the psychological and environmental destruction that transpires from indoctrinated habit.
Connor Descheemaker is a senior Honors College student majoring in Urban & Metropolitan Studies. To complement his extensive work in creative placemaking in central Phoenix, the artist is compiling his debut solo exhibition to coincide with his undergraduate thesis. The multimedia installation compiles field recordings from three central Phoenix community spaces to present a glimpse at how the auralscape aids in the construction of sense of place. A participatory wall installation will accompany the sound work to trigger an
audience understanding of the broad meaning of sonic geography.
