Professor reflects on searching for community

For Immediate Release: Sept. 16, 2015 

BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University's Institute for Culture and Society presents “Queerly Visual” with speaker Dave Kube, assistant professor of art and art history, on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 5 p.m. in the Student Services Center 004.

Kube’s work questions how identity is placed upon gay men and their reactions to this often socially stigmatized counterculture. He creates work that is, at its core, influenced by his experiences within the gay community, but often speaks in a more universal way as a means to draw comparisons to the rest of society.

A reception will follow the presentation, as well as the opportunity to ask the speaker questions. For more information, contact the director of the Institute for Culture and Society, Michael C. Hickey, at or 570-389-4161.

  • The Other Renaissance: Painting in 16th-century Venice, Wednesday, Nov. 4, 5 p.m., Warren Student Services center, room 004.
