Submit Your Art for the Art Student Spotlight: Anthropos Exhibit

Art Student Spotlight: Anthropos | Art Exhibit | BSC (Bldg. 35) 2nd floor Ursa Minor Hallway | April 9 – May 3, 2019

Art Student Spotlight: Anthropos exhibit allows for students to submit their artwork for an opportunity for it to be displayed in the Bronco Exhibit Gallery. This spring semester we are taking an anthropological approach and asking CPP students to fit the theme of exploring humanity. The selection of these arts works reflect a glimpse of humanity through social, political, and ecological means. Just as in anthropology, the practice of cultural relativism (the idea of one’s worldview should be examined through their lens) is the primary objection for this exhibition. In showcasing the diverse capturing and interpretations of perspectives and experiences, this “snapshot” glimpse can offer their case. It may challenge ideas or sympathize with others, but to create discussions of their interpretation should be the first step in attempting to understand their perspective.

#BlackatCPP | BSC (Bldg. 35) 2nd floor Ursa Major Rotunda | February 1 – February 28, 2019

In recognition of Black History Month, we have composed this art exhibit to recognize the presence of our Black Cal Poly students. We have asked students to pose for a photograph and write what they appreciate the most from themselves as praxis of self-empowerment through their racial identity. Working alongside BroncoLEAD and African American Student Center, we hope you can see and hear their stories through these images.

Don’t forget to take a selfie with the #BlackatCPP and post on your social media, and do your part in letting your voice, power, and identity be heard.

Social and Political Conjunction: Art of Black History | BSC (Bldg. 35) 2nd floor Digital Monitor Space | February 1 – February 28, 2019

African American history must be examined relative to the experience of the Black community; reflecting their racial condition as a marginalized group. Throughout African American history, social and political movements of great importance have always been tied to their notion of being “black”. The art production throughout black movements has always been used as a vessel of expression for said movements and could hardly be distinguishable from their experience. We have divided this Digital Monitor Space into 4 black eras: Post-Emancipation, Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Movement, and Contemporary history making, to help visualize the connection between the socio-political events and art.
