Huntingdon, Pa. – Beginning on March 15, the Juniata College Museum of Art (JCMA) will show “Dark Horse,” an exhibition featuring art by Gabriela Muñoz. Through her pieces, Munoz explores women’s history, which enables visitors to see the works during Women’s History Month throughout the month of March. The exhibition will be on display through June 23 and is free and open to the public.

Muñoz’s art reflects personal stories from the past and present, showing how women have been undervalued. The exhibit includes unique mediums, such as breastmilk and Mexican earth on handmade paper.

Despite these unique mediums, Jennifer Streb, museum studies professor at the College, believes that the exhibit has continuity with the rest of this year’s exhibits.

“It’s about community and connecting artists past and present,” Streb says.

Like other JCMA exhibits, students in Juniata’s museum studies program will be helping to install and set up the exhibit. Muñoz may even attend at the opening.

The Museum is open from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. To learn more about the exhibition, visit the JCMA during these hours or visit http://www.juniata.edu/academics/museum/index.php.
