Project Barbatype 
Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts 
Martin McDonald Gallery, 
Continues through October 27th

For Project Barbatype, artists Bryan Wing and Scott Hilton use the archaic 19th century tintype process to record facial hair competitors, matching elaborate photographic process to the elaborate subject of facial hair. The care, craft, and time required for hand-made tintype photographs mirrors the deliberate and obsessive attention that facial hair competitors put into preparing their beards for competition.

Barbatype Project


Hours for the Landmark Arts Galleries are: Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM; Saturday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM; Sunday noon - 4:00 PM. Closed during University holidays.
