Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 28, 2023, 3:00-5:00 pm

This exhibition is a culmination of a six-week journey shared by visual arts students across both sections of Integrative Studio II. Taking the piñata as the starting point of their investigation, the artists delved deeply into the subject to expand their understanding of its historical content, materiality, and cultural significance. Building on their research, they created a range of works with distinct approaches to ideas of construction, deconstruction, and transformation. The artists themselves collectively organized this public sharing of their works—each section finding its own way within the shared space of the galleries.
