Annual Exhibition

VA 116 Multiples  November 18-December 10

Drawing inspiration from course readings, research, and previous projects as points of departure, the theme of “multiples” provides the unifying theme for this annual VA116 student exhibition. Examining the space, nooks and crannies of the gallery and the psyche, the culmination of completed works will be installed into a unified installation with the objective of simultaneously engaging the audience with a physical, visual, psychological and sentient experience.
