Daniel Forbes, who is now director of the Sheehan Gallery, was a former senior art thesis student who Lynx was acquainted with while directing Sheehan Gallery.  This show will also show works by Frank Munns, who passed away in January 2013.  Frank Munns curated an exhibit at the Sheehan Gallery for David Lynx, and Lynx filmed Munns in his studio - with original music score by Jose Rambaldi.
