New York Artist and Tech Alumnus Features His Art Exhibition
By Victoria Holloway
Philip Monaghan, who graduated from Texas Tech’s School of Art in 1976, reunites with former professors and colleagues as he presents his collection titled “Why Are You Doing This To Me?” Monaghan’s paintings reflect a poem called the “The Late Show” by David Trinidad. Together, Monaghan and Trinidad portray the lives and challenges of gay men through poetry, paintings, and a film series. Their art creatively depicts the relationship between gay men’s experiences and 1950s women’s films.
