Tondo, Tondo, Tondo, at the Walter Wickiser Gallery in NYC, features work by studio art alumna, Margaret Roleke ’84.

Margaret Roleke’s mixed media work puts a dark spin on the state of the world. She reveals, that from a very early age, we are brainwashed, to some extent, to act and think a certain way through fear tactics and false comfort zones. By combining cute Disney imagery with objects of war and aggression, Roleke reveals how pervasive and long standing this approach to social governing is.
