Montserrat Featured on “Social Distance Gallery!”

 

 

We are so thrilled to see a group of our graduating seniors featured on the world-wide phenomenon that is Social Distance Gallery (@socialdistancegallery). How and where people are interacting with artwork has forever been changed, and Montserrat students are on the front lines of it!

Social Distance gallery was created by Benjamin Cook and adjunct professor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, so graduating students worldwide would at least have virtual space to showcase their theses amid the pandemic. The account solicits work from BFA and MFA students whose shows have been cancelled or limited in any way.

To project has garnered unprecedented attention and is giving voice and platform to students across the globe.

We are honored and proud for our students to be included on this cultural tidal wave. Thanks to the opportunities provided by SDG, more people have seen this group’s works than could have ever been possible in person. We look forward to continuing to submit our student work to this site!
