The Final Exhibition

 

The Final Exhibition

The Encounters Project exhibition is the culminating point where all of the goals of the program come together to celebrate the final projects of the high school students and our work as the undergraduates. For the high school students, their individual works are displayed with images and activities that uncover their creative process. The work of the undergraduates is also shown in the form of retrospective pieces that reflect on their experience teaching in the program.

 

We had eight students from the Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy, who finished art works for the exhibition. After we completed the public art portion of the class, we spent 3 weeks developing each student’s voice to communicate a specific statement through their work of art. It was the generous funding for the project that allowed the students as much freedom as possible when selecting materials and developing idea. This led to the creation of 8 very different projects, which you can see reflected in the graphic above.
