Using the framework of an unproduced TV pilot, Horse Dorm is a mixed media exhibit by Margaret Rogers presented by Institute of Contemporary Art Baltimore at Gallery CA in Baltimore, MD. Combining elements of screenwriting, drawing, collage, and paper mache horse butts with animatronic tails, Rogers explores the fictional world of Horse Dorm, an elite housing center at ‘Dakota University’ where horses and their student-owners board together.
