The Division of Fine and Performing Arts of Manhattanville College has launched an exhibit of recent paintings, drawings, printmaking, installation, digital art, and sculpture of faculty, students, and alum artists.

 

Professor in Studio Art and Director of the Berger and Brownson Art Gallery, Alka Mukerji, Ph.D., said:

"During the beginning of the pandemic, as many schools went online, the art division started to discuss other ways to display artwork and we found it best to continue to share artwork with the community digitally. The division's goal for the exhibit was to unite the art community as a whole and to display the creative work of the Manhattanville community. We decided to contact our faculty members about their recent work and to collect student works as well as recent alumni. Art is a vital component of a balanced life in the best of times, but especially in the midst of a global pandemic. With the current state of the nation, art is crucial both as a therapeutic practice and as a tool to express our thoughts on critical issues like COVID-19, gender equality, global warming, and racial injustice. We will continue to maintain our digital presence, and we will be announcing our new shows and virtual exhibitions in the upcoming months."

The current show will be on view from August 30 through October 30, 2020. V
