Troy University’s Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park and International Arts Center is the place where East meets West at Troy University. People of all ages come together to celebrate, to dance, to sing, to learn, to find inspiration and to experience the world in the beautiful Janice Hawkins Cultural Arts Park. Inside the International Arts Center, the Fred “Nall” Hollis Museum features Nall’s works from the 1960s to today, and the Huo Bao Zhu Gallery houses a revolving gallery of art and visiting exhibits. The Warriors Unearthed exhibit by artist Frank Marquette interprets the history behind the famous terracotta warriors.

Recent Paintings by Sara Dismukes

April 24 - August 22
Closing Reception: August 22, 5-7 p.m.
Artist Talk: August 21, 12:30-1:30 p.m.

Sara Dismukes work speaks to personal voyages. Everyone is familiar with the experience of moving back and forth between public and private spaces. Rather than call attention to the origin or the destination, Dismukes pays attention to what is found along the way. She is compelled by the social mediation of landscape, and how desire and disregard are manifested in spacial elements over time. Sara Dismukes is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and educator based in Montgomery. She has been part of TROY’s Department of Art and Design since 2006.

Nall | Alice in Wonderland

Nall's Lewis Carroll Drawing pictured through an ornate doorway

 Nall's Alice in Wonderland Exhibit is open at Troy University's  Nall Museum and Gallery

In 1975, Nall discovered the enchanting and mysterious “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass”. He read and studied the text with great passion, intrigued by the author, Lewis Carroll and the main character, Alice. After a decade of studying pencil drawings at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the University of Alabama, and being mentored by surrealist painter Salvador Dali, Nall embarked on the creation of what he hails the most important series of his lifetime: “Alice in Wonderland.”
