The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of UNBOUND: Senior Honors Thesis Exhibition 2024.  This exhibition showcases the work of three outstanding seniors from this year’s graduating class in the Department of Art and Art History. Miranda Forman, Claire Siegler, and Makayla Vieira collaborated to create an immersive exhibition featuring their three distinct thesis projects.


Miranda Forman is a storyteller who combines illustration, writing and an array of found and handmade objects to narrate the mysterious travels of a fictional young woman, and her search for artistic inspiration.  Claire Siegler’s watercolor and gouache illustrations recast an array of characters from the Grimm’s Fairytales as the eccentric personalities behind each face card in a standard deck of 52 playing cards.  Makayla Vieira explores the creative possibilities within graphic design, animation, and interactive media to help young people better understand the complexities of their medical diagnoses.  The infographics displayed in her gallery installation serve as educational tools for adolescents with diabetes.


A public reception for the artists will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 04.  Additional information can be found at art.salvereginauniversity.com.
