From November 22, 2010 – January 28, 2011 “Entwined” by Heather Anderson, will be part of an alumni invitational art exhibition entitled, “Ars Longa, Academia Brevis” in the Hillstrom Museum of Art at Gustavus Adolphus College.

“The exhibition features recent artworks in a variety of media by Gustavus studio art majors ranging from the class of 2009 back to the class of 1951, the earliest year students could graduate with the major.  The exhibit’s subtitle references the first lines of a familiar aphorism by the Greek physician Hippocrates, best known in their latin translation Ars longa, vita brevis, which suggests that art endures even through life- or in the exhibition’s variant, the length of one’s college career is brief. ”  -excerpt from Hillstrom Museum of Art exhibition publication.
