FLYING SOLO: Alicia Henry

Alicia Henry's work is created with mixed media on fabric. Her large-scale installation for Flying Solo at Nashville International is based on the theme of "Home." This topic is explored through the definition of home for the individual and for a group. Henry also investigates whether or not people identify home as a physical location or something less tangible, such as a sense of security or the feeling of being nurtured.

In 2001, Henry received a Guggenheim Fellowship, which she used to travel in Africa. She came to Nashville this year to join the Fine Arts Department faculty at Fisk University. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at The School of Art Institute of Chicago and her Master of Fine Arts degree at Yale University. Her artist residency at New York Cityís Art in General resulted in a solo exhibition entitled, "Family Portrait," in 2000. Recent solo shows include, "Four Corners," at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Cheekwood Museum of Artís Temporary Contemporary. She has also participated in group shows at Zeitgeist Gallery in Nashville.

Arts at the Airport exhibits are funded in part by grants from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Tennessee Arts Commission, the Memorial Foundation and other grant-giving organizations.

Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention
Governor Schwarzenegger praised the Peace Corps at the Republican National Convention: "We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children." Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.
