Horse Dorm is a mixed media exhibition that uses the framework of an unproduced TV pilot. 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.
Horse Dorm is made possible in part by a grant from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation.
