MESOAMERICA: Scribe Serise At WSU

Visuals

By Jud Yalku

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, a site-specific painting installation by Mexican heritage Cincinnati artist Rebecca Nava Soto will be presented through Friday, October 22 in the Student Union Art Gallery on the Wright State University campus, 3640 Col. Glenn Hwy., Fairborn. Soto says that Mesoamerica is a region and cultural area extending roughly from central Mexico to Honduras and Nicaragua where several pre-Columbian cultures flourished. The Maya “Scribe” was the revered recorder of time, cosmology and lineage using the language of glyphs. Using references to these glyphs, Soto has created an installation called “Scribe, Fish and the Sea,” with an 8’ by 8’ oil painting based on a 35’ x 45’ mural at the Madisonville (OH) Art Center. Soto will discuss her work and inspirations at a reception Thursday, October 14 from 12:15 to 1:15 pm in the neighboring Pathfinder Lounge. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call (937) 775-2798 or visit www.Wright.edu/admin/ahna
