“I Swear I Saw This: the line as witness” is a group exhibition examining the role of becoming a witness to the world around you through writing, drawing or sculpting. Curated by Mike Calway-Fagen, who is head of the sculpture department at UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art, the exhibition ranges from a drawing, poetry, sculpture, an installation incorporating prints and wood and a multimedia piece using projection and fabric. On Thursday, Calway-Fagen will moderate a panel discussion exploring “art as a tool for witnessing” with participating artists George Belcher, Courtney McClellan, Jacob Sunderlin, Jon Swindler and Christina Tsui. The exhibition will remain on view through Mar. 5, closing with a poetry reading that evening at 6 p.m.
