Welcome to the University of Saint Mary Virtual Art Exhibition.
The visual arts are an integral part of everyday life and permeate all levels of human creativity, expression, communication and understanding. Art is especially important in times of crisis.
Despite the many obstacles of transitioning between in-person and online learning, students at the University of Saint Mary were up for the challenge and produced works that respond to current events, personal introspection, and instill hope for the future. The works in this show may have a socio-political impact as well as ritual, spiritual, decorative, and functional value; they can be persuasive and subversive and in some instances, enlightening and uplifting in others. We celebrate, appreciate, enjoy, respect, and respond to the art-making practices of USM students and congratulate them on a successful exhibition.
