Through April 28, UMass Dartmouth’s College of Visual & Performing Arts Campus Gallery's show  explores the unique mid-century modern campus, in southeastern Massachusetts, through photographs, drawings and 3-D models. Some critics consider this public university campus, designed by Paul Rudolph, an architectural gem. The lead curators,  Anna M. Dempsey & Allison J. Cywin, along with their curatorial team of animators, graphic designers, artists and historians, situate the campus’s architectural aesthetics within the period’s cultural history and politics. Viera Levitt's photographs of Brutalist buildings and Michael Swartz’s spherical photographs of UMass Dartmouth LARTS building will also be featured.
