Imago: the power of a mental image

On view December 17, 2019 – January 9, 2020

For the group exhibition Imago each artist has selected an image which serves as an Imago, or powerful mental image. This exhibition features twenty-four students from the Community College of Rhode Island who are enrolled in Fine Arts Seminar, the capstone course for the Associate of Fine Arts degree. In this course students explore careers in the fields of art and design, design and install exhibitions, identify visual arts grants and awards, and develop a cohesive portfolio of their work which demonstrates their level of excellence. The seminar also presents a variety of guest speakers, including representatives from four-year art schools and professional artists and designers.
