September 8 – October 3
This show, inspired by the work of Rachel Perry Welty, asks students of four different Beaver visual arts classes:
What would a gallery exhibit look like based on empty snack and cereal boxes?
Each class will have one week in the gallery, and they will use snack and cereal boxes to answer the essential questions of their course. The work from all four classes will culminate in an exhibit in October.
- Week 1: September 8-12, Fieldwork class
- Week 2: September 15-19, Mashup
- Week 3: September 22-26, Visual Art Workshop (Middle School)
- Week 4: September 29-October 3, Media and Message class
This post will be updated throughout the four weeks to show what students are working on.
Week 4: Media & Message
The Media & Message class has turned the Nancy Lincoln Gallery into a logo crime scene. They created human outlines out of snack and cereal boxes that tell stories of criminal acts, popular culture, and brand acquisition.
Week 3: Visual Art Workshop
Week 2: Mashup
The Mashup class jumped in and transformed the basketball court from the Fieldwork’s class into a dimly lit space with shapes and shadowy silhouettes.
Week 1: Fieldwork
Students used the cereal and snack boxes to create a mini-basketball court in the Nancy Lincoln Gallery. Watch a snippet of the game here!
Here’s a sneak peek of what the Fieldwork students are working on in the first week of the show:
