Student Art Opening*: Self Portrait Mandalas
December 8, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This event is open to students, family, friends, the school community, and the public.
In partnership with the Stockbridge Town Library, Dr. Genève Brossard’s class presents “Self Portrait Mandalas,” comprised of a series of 3′ x 4.5′ flags as well as studies on paper and canvas.
The students designed mandalas with the intention to represent themselves visually. They studied the international history and usage of the mandala, as well as contemporary public art, and concepts of symbolism and non-figurative portraiture in order to contextualize and visualize their own project. These multi-media works are about the students’ understanding of themselves as being individuals with specific experiences and beliefs, in the larger, interconnected context of their families, friends, communities, and the world. ~Dr. Brossard
