Starting May 10th, the Agora will be turned into a vibrant art gallery, courtesy of the JAC Visual Arts students and teachers. Every second-year student in the program has at least one artwork in the gallery, and they are all proud to show people what they have worked very hard on. This show is open to the public and to students and teachers alike. There may also be some interactive artwork shown in the gallery. The pieces chosen for the show are those that have the most interesting meanings or purposes.
On the night of May 10th, students and teachers will be hosting a vernissage for the family members and friends of the students. Some students will be serving alcohol and food, while others will be escorting people around the gallery to show off their peers’ artworks; two chosen students will be hosting the evening. The vernissage gets very busy, but it really is worth it for the experience alone.
The students are all so excited to have people speculate about their artwork and really appreciate seeing so many people looking at their hard work. The gallery will be open for all students to experience until May 15th, so you have no excuse to not check it out. Come down to the Agora and relax a bit to the sweet sights of art.
