On April 20th, I attended the "2017 Annual Student Exhibition" that was held in the Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola University of Maryland. The exhibition showcased various students work from sculptures and African Art to drawings of pets. My favorite wall in the exhibit was the one that featured the drawings of dogs, insects, and a cat with wings.
On this wall that cat really stood out to me because of the imagination and the thought process that went into the creation. Many of the other drawings on this wall depict the animals as one would see them. The cat, on the other hand, has been altered from a realist depiction and has taken on a new character. The black and white coloring along with the appearance of a pencil sketch also made the cat stand out to me as opposed to the other images on the wall.

Light City at Loyola

On Tuesday, April 4th, I attended Light City at Loyola University of Maryland. At Light City, various students works were highlighted throughout campus using projection screens. The students' works ranged from various techniques such as moving images replicating outer space, to photo editing to make a video collage of a girl's face. Heading into McManus Theatre I put on a glow necklace and bracelet as well as a flashlight ring and entered the theater which had become mystified with flashing lights and an illuminated tree on the stage. Not sure if this was random students or if it was a planned performance but as I was in McManus Theatre a group of students went on to stage and using their light rings, glow necklaces, bracelets, and sticks the students performed a light dance. Check out some pictures and videos that I took at the event to see more of what happened.
