The Marion Art Center announces its upcoming exhibit featuring work by local high school students. The show is part of the MAC’s Young Artist Program. Any student of high school age may submit up to five pieces for consideration. The MAC exhibition committee will review all works and select at least one piece from each applicant. Students may submit work made in school, but the MAC encourages students to make new work -- and priority will be given to those works -- responding to the following theme:
Life in 2021: What Comes Next?
Everyone has experienced challenges throughout the past year, some more so than others. Our lives have been upheaved in a way we could never have imagined due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many of us have also been affected by the turmoil surrounding race, identity, and politics. The way we interact with others is vastly different than it used to be, and our understanding of the world and our future is in a constant state of flux. Whether we have been changed emotionally, if important life plans have stalled, we all find ourselves in a different state of being.
What comes next? What does your life look like after the pandemic is behind us? Are there moments you wish to reflect on? What experiences - which can be simple but meaningful - are you eager to enjoy again? What do you look forward to when you think of your daily life in the relatively near, pandemic-free future?
