Textile works by Bren Ahearn (M.F.A., Art, '10) stitch together in the form of Scrabble pieces. His recent work explores the socialization of American men as violent with conflicting views on sexuality and masculinity. "My hope is that upon reading my work, viewers will engage in a dialogue about the confining nature of behavioral norms," Ahearn says.
