Eva Polzer’s ✨just girlie things✨ Presents Sculptures in Conversation with Girlhood Trauma and Gendered Stereotypes Using Domestic Pet Tropes: Submissive Dogs vs. Mysterious Cats. On view at Akron Soul Train May 3-June 10.

Eva Polzer will be showcased in the CapSOUL gallery from May 3 – June 10, 2023.
