Happy Friday to all! As you can see from my last post, Art Now was this week. Although the two weeks leading up to the show were incredibly stressful, it went incredibly well and I could not be happier.
The show featured work from all art + design majors and minors, as well as work from some PCA classes. Everyone’s display looked super professional, and everyone looked like real life artists. Thirty-five works were sold, which is awesome because that is way more than what has been sold in previous years.
Another highlight from the show was that all of the art students made t-shirts with our professor’s face on it and surprised him by wearing them to the show on Wednesday. We also wore matching plaid over the shirts to honor him. It was weird and exciting and we all loved every minute of it. We had a silent dance party as well, which is when everyone participating wears headphones and dances, so essentially you all look crazy, but it is incredibly fun.
One of the most fulfilling parts about the show, however, was Wednesday night. I was studying in Starbucks and a stranger came up to me and told me how much he liked my work! I was incredibly excited because: 1. I love approaching strangers, so naturally one approaching me was great, and 2. Being told that my work resonated with someone is so fulfilling.
Art Now was an incredible success and just further validated my love for art. If you missed the show, don’t fret. There is a show at the end of each semester, so watch out for the show in the spring.
Have a great weekend, good luck studying, and thanks for reading
