Grossman Gallery will presents the exhibition Baggage, our 2014–15 Lafayette Experience High School Community-Based Teaching Program final project exhibition.
Baggage asks each student to create an installation employing a found or reclaimed trunk or suitcase. The project requires that all materials from tools to artwork can be carried and stored in the baggage of choice, so that their work can be transported, opened, and installed anywhere. The project prompts ideas of transience, homelessness, displacement, memory, personal experience, and more.
The Community-Based Teaching Lafayette Experience Program consists of handpicked art students from Phillipsburg, Belvidere, and Easton area high schools. Throughout the academic year, these talented high school students and their teachers are exposed to contemporary art and artistic practices, introduced to visiting artists, and work on both individual and group projects.
The exhibition opens on Wednesday, June 3, with the reception that day from 4:30 to 6:00.
