Join us for a celebration of the visual arts at Mason. Explore the award-winning Art and Design Building and be prepared to see the visual arts at Mason as you’ve never seen them before. Studios throughout the building will be open for you to see the faculty and students at work. Demonstrations by faculty and students will take place in the studios and in the gallery throughout the evening.
In the Computer Game Design Program's rooms, guests will view and play student developed games and apps. In addition, Assistant Professor Matthew Nolan will present "6 Balas," an interactive audio-visual commentary on the Drug War and Gun violence.
Guests will have the opportunity to interact with faculty and students in the School of Art's various disciplines and activities - including graphic design, photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, drawing, and new media.
The main gallery will have a special exhibit by noted textile artist Sonya Clark titled “Black and White and Thread All Over.” Sonya Clark explores issues of identity, race, and culture through the use of textiles, combs, and hair, blurring the boundaries between art and craft. She chairs the nationally ranked Crafts and Material Studies Department at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Food and beverage stations will be located throughout the building for your enjoyment.
Complimentary parking will be available in the Shenandoah Parking Deck.
