Lurid Illustrations: Valerie Hegarty
If you’re in NYC, now’s an excellent time to view the works of Valerie Hegarty in her current exhibit titled “Alternative Histories”. Right at the Brooklyn Museum on the 4th floor, you can view Hegarty’s displays, which portray themes including “colonization, Manifest Destiny, and repressed history.” Hegarty uses a myriad of media to build these metaphorical and organic chaos and decay scenes. This exhibit is available for viewing until December 1st, 2013, but if you can’t make it, or aren’t in the Tri-State area, you can view her online portfolio and her complete bio here.
