    Made Masculine
    The thirteen contemporary artists in this exhibition
    accept the framework that masculinity is made,
    fashioned, and modified generation to generation.
    Selected works of art explore the artifice of masculinity
    through themes such as strength, desire, and intimacy
    while posing the question: What does it mean to be
    made masculine or to make one’s own masculinity?
    Guest curator, Lisa Crossman, Ph.D., Interim Curator,
