The exhibit will open Jan. 29 in the Trahern Gallery on APSU's campus. Law will present a talk at 7 p.m., followed by an opening reception.

Law said his public artwork confirms his inclination to develop relationships with individuals and communities.

“I will work with the APSU community to explore the idea of what it means to be an American,” he said. “I am attracted to art's potential to activate the relationships between individuals and communities as well as create meaning and metaphor from common cultural materials.”
