Art in the Age of Pandemic:
A Salve Student Photo Project
January 26 – February 18, 2021
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Art in the Age of Pandemic: A Salve Student Photo Project.
During the fall of 2020, students taking courses in the Department of Art and Art History were invited to document their everyday experience of the pandemic. A group of 72 students, both majors and non-majors studying in the visual arts, submitted over 700 images for review. From this collection, nearly 250 photographs were printed and composed into large-scale grids that reference the “walls” of social media platforms. Many of these images archive the proliferation of signage and the omnipresence of face masks. Others capture the moments of heartbreaking difficulty and enduring connectedness that shape our daily lives.
An online reception for Art in the Age of Pandemic will take place on Thursday, February 4 at 6:00. Anyone interested in attending this reception is welcome to use the following Zoom link.
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is handicap accessible. Due to the pandemic, its exhibits are open exclusively to the Salve community on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 to 6:00 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:00 to 5:00 p.m. The gallery is currently closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. We invite you to visit us.
