The work of UT Tyler fine arts junior Nora Schreiber of Tyler is currently on display at Rose Rudman Park.

Her multimedia art installation will be featured for public viewing during regular park hours, 6 a.m. – midnight, through Wednesday, April 20. The installation will stretch through the Rose Rudman trails between Loop 323 and Shiloh Road in Tyler.

"This exhibition is to create awareness for the community aimed at furthering a better relationship between strangers," said Schreiber. "The images, on vinyl posters, showcase members of society that would not be seen as 'normal.' The viewer is given a complimentary word across the subject's face, like a mask. This is to create a forced positive first impression.

"These posters line the walkway of Rose Rudman park leading to a sculptural installation. The sculpture is made of over 300 plaster casts of plastic bags. This represents people. Each bag is made the same, from the same material, like people, yet they are all individual and unique. They are grouped together to give the idea of unity," she added.

Schreiber works as a social activist artist, and she will graduate with a bachelor's degree next May.
