Join GOCA Downtown for the exhibition opening of Unapologetic on First Friday in April from 5-9 pm. Enjoy refreshments and celebrate the achievements of UCCS’ graduating Visual Art students! Exhibit on display through May 18th.
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Unapologetic speaks to the requirement for artists to be driven and bold in their creative practice. The exhibited artists express a variety of experiences, beliefs, perspectives, and worldviews. The thread tying them together is their desire to share their messages in an unashamed, unapologetic manner. The majority of the work in this show—from curation and installation to administration—was completed by the artists.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The annual Senior Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Majors exhibition features the works of senior VAPA students Love Aritus, Nicole Brewer, Joshua Hardin, March Gotthoffer-DuCharme, Brittany McNeil, Mia Mras, Chavez Padilla, Grace L Rouse, Deborah Schoen, Amanda Symonette, Clark Valentine, and Heather Windom. This is the 13th iteration of the Senior VAPA Majors art exhibition at GOCA—and the second time that it will be held at GOCA Downtown. Learn more about the artists here.
