Scene at UHD: Mayuko Ono Gray and Dr. Jimmy Jung

UHD was on the scene this week at artist Mayuko Ono Gray’s opening at O’Kane Gallery and Vice President of Enrollment Management Dr. Jimmy Jung’s welcome reception. 

On Sept 5, Ono Gray’s exhibition “This Too, Shall Pass” opened with a reception at the O’Kane Gallery and will run until Oct 1. Her graphite drawings show naturalistic subjects together with fantastical twisting tubes that spell out proverbs in Japanese. 

Also on Sept 5, UHD hosted a welcome reception for Dr. Jimmy Jung, the new Vice President of Enrollment Management. Jung helped UHD reach its goal of enrolling a record 15,000 students for the fall semester.
