New Exhibit Marks Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Please join us in the McGladrey Art Gallery for the opening of an exhibit commemorating the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall:

The Virtual Wall: A 25th Anniversary Commemoration of the Fall of Communism in Germany

Monday, November 17 at 4:00 p.m.

Introduction by Dan Everett, Dean of Arts and Sciences
Opening remarks by Rolf Schütte, German Consul General of New England

This exhibit includes two pieces. One piece is the "Virtual Wall", an interactive art installation created by Tamiko Thiel and Teresa Reuter, which allows viewers to walk along the Berlin Wall as it was in the 1980s. The accompanying piece is a series of original 1989 photographs on loan from the German consulate depicting scenes of the days that the wall came down. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Department of Global Studies, the Valente Center for Arts and Sciences and the Dean of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with Northeastern University and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany for New England.

Please note that the "Virtual Wall" portion of the exhibit will be available Monday, November 17 through Thursday, November 20, 2014.  The photographs will remain on display through December 17, 2014 [note: date extended from 12/9 to 12/17].
