Annie Buckley Investigates Andrea Bowers: #Sweetjane for KCET

"Investigating Steubenville: Andrea Bowers' #sweetjane," by Annie Buckley for KCET Artbound

Just days after the Associated Press announced, "Obama Targets College Sexual Assault Epidemic," the attention of the Los Angeles art world shifted to the sleepy college town of Pomona, for the opening of "#sweetjane," an exhibition of new work by Andrea Bowers. Co-hosted by Pitzer College Art Galleries and Pomona College Museum of Art, the exhibition explores the events, circumstances, and implications of an August 2012 teen rape case in Steubenville, Ohio. The celebratory sense of the opening night reception proved a sharp counterpoint to the heartbreaking but vital work.
