Artwork Created by American International College Students Chosen for Juried Art Show

Artworks created by five American International College students were selected for the What’s on Your Plate? exhibit, on view May 5 - June 29 at The Great Falls Discovery Center in Turners Falls, MA.  The What’s on Your Plate? theme asks artists to investigate the entanglement of food, time, commitment, and ecology. Exploded View curated the exhibit in collaboration with the Discovery Center's 2024 Food, Farms, and Factories project and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
 
Opening reception will be held on May 5, 2024, from 2 - 4 p.m. at 2 Avenue A, Turners Falls, MA.
 

Realizing the connections between the What’s On Your Plate? theme and the Food and Society focus of assignments in the Division of Arts, Media, and Design, Professor Nordell encouraged 17 select students to answer the call for entries. Here are the five accepted artworks created in Digital Photography 1 and 2, along with the General Education course Cultivating Creativity.

Food and Society Art Show Opening Celebration

Food and Society Art Show Opening Celebration on Wednesday, April 24

 
You're invited to join us for an Art Show Opening Celebration on Wednesday, April 24, from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM in the West Wing Gallery of the Karen Sprague Cultural Arts Center. Food will be served. 

This semester, midterm projects in the Digital Photography 1 and 2, Graphic Design 2, and Cultivating Creativity courses focused on Food and Society. Students responded to the following assignment prompt:

What we eat, how food is produced, and the conditions of the workers who farm, prepare, and serve food have huge implications for our lives. Absorb the provided resources.  Or, you may have your own personal connection to Food and Society. Find an issue relating to Food and Society that resonates with you. Then, imagine how you would visually portray this issue. Finally, create the artwork to express your ideas.
