Our Movement, the Associate in Fine Arts portfolio exhibition, is on display in the Visual Arts Center now through April 18.
There are a wide variety of students at ARCC that are involved with the Art Club, whether they are majoring in art or any other major; the club is open to any student enrolled at ARCC. The main purpose of the Art Club is basically networking, a resource for art majors or any student interested in the arts.
As the advisor of the Coon Rapids campus Art Club, Laura Migliorino holds the responsibility of setting the schedule and the agenda for all the art meetings.
”I feel like my job is to help the students get to where they want to go,” said Migliorino. Another one of her duties include communicating with the Art Club through email blasts that let student club members know about upcoming events and what’s happening in the larger art community.
“My primary goal is to create a community of people interested in the visual arts,” said Migliorino. She wants all students to know that anybody interested in joining the Art Club can email her for more information.
ARCC’s own Skylar Snyder, who is also part of the Art Club, won first place for a black and white photo in the 9th annual All for Art student exhibition. The photo was titled Discarded Patriotism, Snyder found this scene while he was on a walk. After studying the piece for a while he decided to snap a picture of the scene. Synder said he feels “Pretty ecstatic, as an artist it is really rewarding knowing people appreciate your work.”
The All for Art exhibition is significant because it’s open to any and all students at ARCC. This year, All for Art received 66 pieces and 36 were accepted for the show.
Snyder will also be submitting some projects for the Our Movement exhibition which is going on currently and is also held at ARCC. The opening reception was March 24 but the show will be going on until April 18 which means all the art submitted will stay up until then. All the pieces of art in the show are displayed in the Visual Arts Center.
