Sheela Does Ramapo

Renowned feminist artist Nancy Spero will fill the Kresge and Pascal galleries at Ramapo College's Berrie Center with her female figures in an exhibition she has titled Sheela Does Ramapo. The title refers to her "historical" use of the Sheela-Na-Gig fertility figure in colorful and energetic works. Spero's highly respected oeuvre includes works which celebrate the place of women in society and powerfully comment on oppressive political situations. The exhibition includes a major Spero work from the Ramapo College Collection.
