Gazing Deeply showcases how WKU’s backyard—the unique landscape of Mammoth Cave—is being studied, interpreted, and inspiring action on environmental change. Coinciding with the UNESCO Conservation of Fragile Karst Resources: A Workshop on Sustainability and Community and Earth Day’s 50th anniversary in 2020, this exhibition is a collaborative effort between arts and science faculty and students that highlights one of the most well-known and vital natural landscapes in the world.

History suggests that as “big business” started to take hold in the late 1800s, women became more involved in business and working outside the home. However, few women owned companies. Those that did were in industries centered on women, such as home goods, apparel, or personal care.

Today, women own only 40% of businesses in the U.S., making Carrie Burnam Taylor’s business of the early 20th century that much more impressive. Curated with Dr. Carrie Cox, this exhibit will explore Taylor's life and work, displaying three of her dresses, two coats, two bodices, and various undergarments recently conserved thanks to our Adopt-an-Artifact program.

Danielle Mužina, an artist and educator currently living and working in Cleveland, Ohio, makes paintings that explore place, identity, and crisis, inspired by both personal lived and inherited familial experiences. Using the homespace as a point of grounding and as metaphor, she writes: "My immigrant grandmother, reflecting on witnessing national traumas in our home of former Yugoslavia, tells me 'to pay attention when the sky's bleeding, even if someone tells you it's not'."
