Members of the community are encouraged to attend.

“Bedlam,” to be featured in the space Nov. 4-Dec. 11, is a visual exploration created by local photographer Robert Turney of 19th century mental patient imagery using the tintype photographic process. The project includes text discovered by Michigan State University professor Stephen Rachman.

Robert Turney is an East Lansing resident. He works from home. He specializes in the tintype pinhole photography process.

Stephen Rachman is the Associate Chairperson for Graduate Studies and Associate Professor of 19th century American literature at Michigan State University.

This will be (SCENE) Metrospace’s sixth and final art exhibition of 2011.

The opening reception will also feature a forum facilitated by Michigan State University students from the Residential College of Arts and Humanities. The discussion will begin at 7:30 p.m. The discussion will attempt to generate ideas concerning the definition of a creative space and new ways in which East Lansing can become a more creative place.
