Artmaking in Pandemic Times

Exhibition Info
Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building
A juried exhibition of current PAFA student artwork, featuring winners from the school's "Design A Face Mask" open call

The purpose of this exhibition is to display artwork that embodies the interests, skills, perseverance, problem-solving, and other traits vital to PAFA student artists.  Starting the Fall 2020 Semester and keeping an eye on the potential danger and various inconveniences of the current global health emergency, PAFA students are committed to applying themselves and engaging with materials and ideas to create artwork. Every era has a unique congress of elements, every artist uniquely responds to those elements.
