Western Engaged is proud to present a Spring program in collaboration with the Western Gallery to connect current and past art, art history, and design students centered on the question, “How has COVID-19 impacted your artistic practice?”
The pandemic has impacted us all. But more specifically, as a graduate in the arts, how has your life professionally and creatively shifted over the past year? At Western the 2021 Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art class has had to shift and navigate their program in an entirely new fashion due to COVID restrictions. Their culminating exhibition at the Western Gallery, Material Mind, opens May 20.
This virtual panel seeks to bring together the varying Western voices of current and recent graduates from Bachelor of Fine Arts program to share how 2020 has impacted their professional career or artistic practice. Artist and Associate Professor of Time-Based Art Chris Vargas, will be moderating the main discussion of this event and audience participation will also be employed to cultivate a rich conversation on the topic.
