Zombie art exhibit to invade Gallery Visio


This painting by senior photography major Virginia Harold is titled “Hungry for the Girl.” It will be part of Gallery Visio’s “EXPIRED” exhibition opening Oct. 6.

“EXPIRED,” an exhibition of students’ interpretation of zombie art, will be on display at Gallery Visio on the campus of the University of Missouri–St. Louis from Oct. 6 to Oct. 31. An opening reception will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 6.

UMSL student artists will introduce the dark and amazing world of zombie art to gallery patrons for a Halloween treat. The artists will attack their favorite media to depict the dynamic and horrific nature of zombie culture.

Gallery Visio is pleased to give UMSL student artists the opportunity to explore the intriguing subject matter of zombies and to provide an alternative creative outlet. Artists will produce zombie-inspired art in various types of media for patrons’ viewing and interacting pleasure. In addition, the artists will be on hand for the opening reception, which will include a DJ playing Halloween-themed music, free food and interactive pieces of art.
