In PCA&D’s Core Gallery: ‘Coming to Terms’

SCROLL FOR A VIRTUAL TOUR OF “COMING TO TERMS.” THE EXHIBITION IS CLOSED TO IN-PERSON VISITS DUE TO PRECAUTIONARY COVID-19 MEASURES:

 

The inaugural exhibition for PCA&D’s student-led Core Gallery, Coming to Terms, is curated by Nikkole Hagginbothom ’20, Fine Art.

Coming to Terms honors the Class of 2020, featuring reflections by the seniors on their growth during their time at PCA&D. The installation is a proclamation of the impact of a PCA&D education and the students’ professional practice as emerging artists.

The text-based participatory paper chain installation is, for each senior, a final chance to celebrate all their accomplishments and connections made during their time at PCA&D. Each link holds importance not just for the seniors to reflect upon, but also for the entire student body and potential PCA&D students who get a chance to see Coming to Terms.

“As students, we were given so many opportunities to grow and reach for goals that we never could possibly have imagined as children when we were scribbling with crayons. We have succeeded. We surpassed our dreams and accomplished so much as we enter the final stages of our PCA&D experience,” Hagginbothom says. “We are looking forward to experiencing the collective creation of gratitude and reflection that unfolds before us as the chains connect and grow. For now, let us celebrate together all that we have accomplished as we bid PCA&D farewell as students, and enter the ranks of professional artists as graduates.”
