School may be out for the summer. However, activities at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D) are just warming up.
The College and Hershey Gardens have worked together to offer a new exhibit titled “Four Surreal Seasons.” Senior illustration majors at PCA&D have created several four-paneled, surrealistic paintings that are rooted in the tradition of "exquisite corpse." They each stand about 4 ½ feet tall and celebrate nature and the changing seasons.
The exhibit will be installed on the walkway of the Children’s Garden and will open for public viewing on Friday, 23 May. It will run through 28 September. PCA&D faculty member and Chair of the Illustration department Robert Hochgertel and fellow faculty member/PCA&D alumnus Jonathan Yeager '04 led this exciting project at the College. Hershey Gardens does charge an admission.
“Selected Artwork from the BFA Program” is the upcoming exhibit at the College. It is a showcase of various media from the PCA&D students. The opening reception will be June’s First Friday, 6 June, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The exhibit will run through 1 August.
