Art & You

This program is committed to exhibiting two artists who are selected for their commitment to creating high-quality artwork which explores themes of individual and cultural identity

The Mosiac Project began in 2009 with funding from the Lancaster County Community Foundation. In 2011 PCA&D made a commitment to the future of the project, renaming it Art & You, and has taken on the responsibility of sustaining and funding this important, community-based project.

Now in its twelfth year, the Art & You 2019 features Antonius-Tín Bui and Cupid Ojala.

Antonius-Tín Bui is a queer, gender-nonbinary Vietnamese-American artist and recent graduate of the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Their hand-cut paper portraits of Queer People of Color Antonius has had the honor of befriending are influenced by the artist’s environment and the tradition of cut paper that is visible among most Asian cultures.

Cupid Ojala earned his MFA at Parsons The New School for Design. His performances and portraits draw attention to some of the most personal aspects of LGBTQ culture, including hair, desire, and the concept of transformation.

The educational component of Art & You invites high school students from the city’s School District of Lancaster to spend a day at PCA&D interacting with the exhibition and one of the two artists. Scholarships are also awarded to middle school students through the PCA&D Center for Creative Exploration, giving these students the opportunity to meet one of the Art & You artists.

Art & You features a full schedule of events that are free and open to the public. Visit the Gallery to see upcoming events.
