Edgewood College is pleased to present Envisioned Worlds: Lithographs from the Hokes Archives by Beauvais Lyons. The exhibition opens Wednesday, September 6 at the Edgewood College Gallery.

Envisioned Worlds presents a survey of prints by Beauvais Lyons, the self-appointed Director of the Hokes (pronounced “hoax”) Archives. Lyons has been creating elaborate works of academic and museum parody for more than three decades. This exhibition is comprised of twenty-five lithographs from three of his projects: “Reconstruction of an Aazudian Temple,” “Hokes Medical Arts,” and “The Association for Creative Zoology.”

Lyons will accompany his exhibition with a lecture about the imaginary founder of the Archives, Everitt Ormsby Hokes, at 4:00 pm on Friday, September 15 in Anderson Auditorium. The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Edgewood College Gallery.
