Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) is presenting its annual Year in Review Student Art Show, opening Wednesday, April 26 with a reception and from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. in Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay Street in lower Manhattan.
The exhibit showcases the work of more than 200 BMCC students, in a wide range of media and formats. The show will be on view through May 16.
“This show continues to grow more exciting as our students develop their skills, from beginning to upper-level classes, with exceptional art faculty. For the students, they gain a further learning experience—and a proud thrill—to exhibit their work beside their peers in the professional gallery setting of the Shirley Fiterman Art Center,” said Sarah Haviland, Professor of Art at BMCC and coordinator of the show.
Art Professor Peter Greenwald says the college’s studio art major is not only preparing students for the upcoming show, but it is also preparing students who transfer to some of the country’s best art programs.
“In this year's student exhibit, the focused study, the seriousness of our students, is on display. They will arrive at art school ready to succeed,” said Greenwald.
In conjunction with this year’s show, a musical recital featuring BMCC Voice students, the BMCC Flute Choir as well as the Guitar and String Ensemble is scheduled for May 12 at 7:30 p.m., also in Shirley Fiterman Gallery.
