Hypnogogia is a photography exhibition on campus, at the University Art Gallery, displaying work by Tommi Cahill, an art professor at The University of Redlands. Her show is open from Feb. 13 to March 21, and will be closed during Spring Break from Feb. 24 to March 4. Cahill’s show aims to bring forth the visions that come to mind after being told a dream or story you would hear at a slumber party. However, these tales are not for the faint of heart. Hypnogogia will walk you through the perception of both dreams and waking nightmares. Prepare to be drawn about the room by vivid and oh so real storytelling. Warning: This exhibition contains material that depicts nudity, violence, and other subject matter that might be offensive to the viewer. Discretion is advised.
