Covenant Film and Panel Discussion

Feb 7, 2013 (All day)

A captivating extension of Michael Mercil’s 2008-2011 Wexner Center installation The Virtual Pasture, Covenant reflects on the economy of keeping livestock.

The Virtual Pasture—previously located on a plot of land just outside the Wexner Center—explored both the history of The Ohio State University as an agricultural college and the place of farm animals in contemporary life. Covenant goes one step further, culminating and broadening the project to call our attention to the rewards, challenges, and anxieties of the human to farm animal bond.

Following the premiere, there will be a panel discussion organized by the Department of Art Living Culture Initiative and cosponsored by the Humanities Institute.
