Student Gallery 160 Presents:

Opening Reception April 15th, 1pm

TAKE A STAND Art Exhibit

Date & Time: Wednesday, May 11, 2016 - 1:00pm to Monday, May 16, 2016 1:00pm
Location: Cornelius Art Center, Student Art Gallery 160, 1928 Saint Mary's Road, Moraga, CA 94575
View a map and get directions.


TAKE A STAND will include student’s artwork from Art & Art History Department classes; Printing for Protest, Gallery Exhibitions, and Digital Art, regarding politically charged issues seen throughout the globe, but also as an interactive piece in which students are given a platform to take a stand. Participating students will be  given a “check all that apply” template for a letter addressing whatever governing body they wish to address about whatever issues they feel need addressing. At the end of the show letters will be given to the governing bodies the students letters address. Talking about issues and actually taking a stand on them are two vastly different things. One is an idea, the other is a plan. With our exhibit we hope to create a plan to fix these issues. Please join us for the opening reception on April 11th from 1-230pm.  Curated by the Student Gallery Exhibition Team
