A new student art exhibit began last week in the Norman Hall Gallery. The exhibit, titled “A Place of Our Own,” features the work of Black, Indigenous, and Tech students of Color
Earlier this semester, BIPOC students were encouraged to submit work to contribute to the exhibit. As a result, the gallery showcases 36 pieces of art from 15 different students. The gallery celebrates the diverse cultural heritage of students on the Tech campus. Visual and written works are on display at the gallery to create a space for diverse students to display their talents.
“I am very proud of all of the students who worked on the art for this exhibit,” Neal Harrington, professor of art and director of the Norman Hall Gallery, said. “We are proud to display these diverse arts of work to all of you.”
Many of the artists noted their love of art and how their created works can shine a light into their experiences and perspectives at the reception. The artists included in this exhibit titled “A Place of Our Own” are Ronnie Allen, Romi Anderson, Neiah Denney, Jabriel Fleming, Oscar Garcia, Kaliyah Jackson, Ashley Marin, Nathaly Marin, Kientre’ Maxie, Elonna McPeters, Molly Mok, Jessica Profit, Jason Richardson, Jasmine Romero and Jessica Zelaya.
The exhibit began on Feb. 13 and will continue to be open every weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Monday, Feb. 27 at Norman Hall Art Gallery.
This is not the only exhibit being hosted in the spring 2023 semester as the gallery will host the annual ATU senior shows for fine arts students from March 6 to March 17, an exhibit for game and interactive media students from March 9 to April 10, and the final exhibit will be from graphic design students from April 13 to April 26.
