This week, Upper School Advisory classes attended receptions in the Ross Gallery commemorating the opening of a new student exhibition. The show, Art @Ross, is a survey of visual arts projects created by students in Integrated Arts and Visual Arts courses at Ross Upper School.
Among the pieces featured is Towards a More Just and Sustainable World, a large-scale mural created as the culminating project from last year’s Art and Activism Field Academy class. Other highlights include a collection of student-created catalogs documenting 20 years of the Seventh Grade Exhibition Project, photos of Peruvian children holding paintings made by Ross Students for the Memory Project, and award-winning works from the Longhouse Student Art Show. A selection of paintings, drawings, sculpture, and fashion design from the 2015–2016 school year is also included.
“At Ross, visual arts is embedded into the curriculum,” said Dean of Visual Arts Jennifer Cross. “This collection of pieces here shows the breadth of our program and the value art adds to the education we provide.”
The exhibition will be on display in the Ross Gallery until November 1, 2016.
