Exhibition: Homegrown — Closes
February 8, 2020
December 21–February 8, 2020
How do our surroundings shape us? From the neighborhoods we grew up in, to the natural world we inhabit and the community of people around us, our environment can greatly influence our perspective, outlook and artistic practice. In the age of the internet and global inter-connectivity, to what extent does our geographic location still inform our sense of identity?
In Homegrown, student artists of FIT’s Urban Studio club explore these concepts of home, environment, and culture through various media and artistic approaches. While viewing this exhibition, visitors are invited to ponder their own history and reflect on what home means to them.
This exhibition was creatively conceived by Mariel Tepper, Urban Studio president, and club advisor Melissa Starke, Fine Arts Department.
This exhibition is free and open to the public.
