Their work explores with thoughtful vigor installation, digital art, painting and drawing, and textiles. Conceptually these forms connect to each student’s deeply personal experiences of trauma, racial justice, spirituality, and the pandemic. The students are responsible for the curation and installation of the show which opens April 16, 2021.
