The exhibit explores the notion that in the face of a broken recorder, we once again rely on language as the last effort of proof that the visceral exists. A reception will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 11. General admission is free although a donation of $3 is suggested. Parking at CSUSB is $6 per vehicle.
