Works of Art from the Class of 2011
The Cornell Fine Arts Museum, in collaboration with the Department of Art and Art History at Rollins College, is proud to announce the opening of This is Art, an exhibition honoring the work of six senior art majors from the Class of 2011, on Friday, April 22 from 5:30 pm-7:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.
The group exhibition showcasing six senior art majors, Lacy Goodwyn, Jennifer Hirschmann, Siobhan Philbin, Diego Pinedo, Margaret Rowland, and Caitlin Vyborny, celebrates their works and accomplishments over the past four years as students of graphic design, illustration, painting, photography and sculpture.
Goodwyn, 22, of Washington D.C., reveals the dichotomy of exterior and interior self while exploring issues of conforming to society.
Hirschmann, 22, of London, UK, deconstructs the ambiguity resulting from transnational identity.
Philbin, 22, of Burlington, VT, highlights the irrational love pet owners have with domesticated canines.
Pinedo, 22, of Orlando, FL, portrays issues between transition and notions of self.
Rowland, 22, of Miami, FL, examines how interpersonal individual relationships are affected by military service.
Vyborny, 23, of Roscoe, IL, illustrates the inconsistencies within the housing market. The exhibition selections exemplify the students’ skills and creative innovation.
These students have also worked together to design the invitation and promote the opening of their show as emerging artists in the community.
