Visual Culture at IHS returns to TCPL June, July & August

Visual Culture at IHS, the annual art exhibit curated by the faculty and featuring the work of Ithaca High School students returns to the Library for a two part exhibit during June, July and August.

During June this exhibit has featured the work of students in Ceramics & Sculpture displayed in the Avenue of the Friends.

During July and August the exhibit will feature artwork created this past year by IHS students in Drawing & Painting, Studio Art, Digital & Film Photography, and AP Studio Art.

The art students at Ithaca High School want to talk about what they know, see and feel through their art.  Their images are personal portraits and perspectives of their environment, their friends, their lives and their imaginations.  Text and image, faces and places are presented as a visual dialogue of these young artists’ lives.

This exhibit is made possible support from the Fine Arts Booster Group & IPEI.

An opening reception will be held during Gallery Opening Night on Friday, July 11, 2014.
