Exhibition Features Student Artwork

Boston College will host "Art with a Social Conscience," an exhibition of artwork by students from nearly 30 New England secondary schools, during the weekend of May 6 and 7 in the Lower Campus Dining Hall.

Students in grades nine through 12 created the 500 works using a variety of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, ceramics and photography. The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. on May 6 and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on May 7.

The show is intended to promote the creation of art that asks important questions about identity, diversity and justice, according to exhibition organizer Prof. John Michalczyk (Fine Arts).

"It will be a great showcase for these artists and a way to communicate to this very important secondary school market that the arts are valued here at BC," said Michalczyk, who added that organizers hope to make the exhibition an annual campus event.

"Art with a Social Conscience" is being organized by the Fine Arts Department and the Art Association of New England Preparatory Schools, with funding provided by the Ralph Bradley Family Trust.
