During this academic year while the galleries on both SUNY Orange campuses are closed, Cultural Affairs invited the college community and the community-at-large an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings about current times through the transformative aspect of visual art and poetry. It was long in gathering, organizing, and developing. However, its goal was achieved and is presented in the online exhibit, American Voices through Art and Poetry.
The exhibit encompasses works by a wide-range of people from teenagers to senior citizens in the following media: paintings, drawings, photographs, collages, mixed media, fiber/fabric, sculptures, and poetry. The 53 participants are residents of Orange, Sullivan, or Ulster Counties and/or are students, faculty, or staff of SUNY Orange. The subjects of the works vary greatly and are deeply thoughtful.
This timely exhibit which includes original music has been designed so that viewers may proceed as if walking through a gallery, embracing all of its entirety and each work individually. Since it is a video, the viewer can control the speed. Access the exhibit via the SUNY Orange website on Cultural Affairs: sunyorange.edu/calendar.
As part of its mission, Cultural Affairs offers events to the college and community as a means of complementing our knowledge and understanding of the diversity of human experience, the arts and creative achievement ... and to engage the college community and the community-at -large in cultural/intellectual discourse.
American Voices through Art and Poetry, which is on view through December 31, 2020 is a production of Cultural Affairs to which questions or comments may be directed at email@example.com.
