A Look Inside The Handmaid’s Tale

The Handmaid’s Tale, written by Margaret Atwood, is Onondaga Community College’s Common Read for the 2018-2019 academic year. Now in its third year, OCC’s Common Read program promotes campus-wide reading while encouraging people to identify, reflect upon, and share their personal stories. The Everson has partnered with OCC to present an exhibition of works from the Museum’s collection that address the themes and rich visual symbolism found within Atwood’s novel. A Look Inside The Handmaid’s Tale draws connections between the visual and literary world as a means to deepen our experience of both art forms and to sharpen our thinking about the world we live in today.
