From Whence We Came

From Whence We Came

As part of the Art and Art History Department curriculum, art majors have the opportunity to exhibit in the College’s professional gallery space, the Hewitt Gallery of Art.
This group exhibition features the work of 12 practice-based art majors who developed a body of work in the Senior Art Seminar under the guidance and mentorship of Professor Beth Shipley.

The show presents a broad range of senior capstone projects that engage the mediums of drawing, painting, printmaking, illustration, graphic design, and clothing design.
The work interrogates questions of gender, equity, social justice, feminism, personal histories, and cultural narratives.
The breadth and scope of media and styles attest to the diversity of approaches and the unique visions that are the hallmark of the art program at Marymount Manhattan College.

The exhibition runs from December 5, 2021 - February 23, 2022
