Student Art Exhibits

The UAA/APU Books of the Year is a unique common reading program - we select a theme and books to provoke discussions about serious issues, rather than providing a “common reading” or an "introduction to college" experience.  The books vary from year to year, but the underlying concept remains - to stimulate dialogue between people about topics they care about.  

Professor Herminia Din uses the Books of the Year theme as a stimulus for an art show, created and curated by senior students.  Their reflections on the theme, transformed through their art, is another way for people to engage with serious topics.  We’re proud to collaborate with Senior Seminar art class to show the ability of art to portray multiple layers of interpretation.  The students’ work illustrates how artists can be actively engaged in serious discussions of contemporary social issues.

We hope you enjoy these catalogues of outstanding images, and discuss the underlying messages with your friends.
