2nd Annual Art Expedition Exhibition

Juried National Student Show

October 2018 - May 2019

Transition is defined as “movement, passage, or change from one position, state, or place to another.” By nature, the Art Expedition is constantly moving from place to place, new visitors and students tour at each location and each experience for the viewer is slightly different. As such, the 2018-2019 school year Art Expedition is filled with artwork that encourages dialogue about movement and change.
