Week of Dance
This Fall we are premeiring a brand new event! With help from the Robsham Theatre Arts Center, we've created this event in order to showcase the spectacular dancing talent Boston College has to offer. This event kicks off the week after Thanksgiving break with a Monday movie dance-themed movie night. As the week goes on, there will be chances to participate in dance workshops run by fellow students from some of BC's best dance groups of all different styles! The week culminates in two nights of performances by BC dancers alone. Proceeds from each night's show will help support the Campus School.
The upcoming exhibit in the new faculty and student Carney Art Gallery, running from November 2 - December 4, 2015.
Opening Reception: Monday, November 2, 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Hours of Operation: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Location: Carney Art Gallery, Room 203
The Carney Art Gallery's first official exhibition is opening this fall with Sammy Chong's The Pilgrim! BC Visiting Professor Sammy Chong's latest work depicts the journey of a modern man in search of his authentic self. In this series of paintings Chong has appropirated Peter Paul Rubens's etchings of the life of Saint Ignatius of Loyola to create a parallel narrative that follows one's path from self-centeredness to a man for others. Chong has brilliantly recast this journey in a way that speaks to a modern audience, though certain elements of his work will be sure to catch the eyes of those familiar with Ignatius and his journey.

Our last Arts Festival was a massive success. Between April 23 and 25 Boston College was bursting with the very best it had to offer in dance, music, visual art, literary art, and theatre. With over 1,000 student and faculty artists participating there was no shortage of beautiful, inspiring, and daring works for the public to see. From the professional beauty of the art work displayed in the Stokes Art Tent to the vibrant enthusiasm of Dancing with bOp!, there was never a dull moment during the entirety of the Festival. See our Arts Festival Highlights page for a more detailed look at the BC Arts Festival of 2015.
Mark your calendars...ArtsFest 2016 will be held on April 28th-30th!
