They MatteredStudent Artists Reflect Themselves in the 21st Annual Skyline College Juried Student Art Exhibition

Through the unbounded joy and unspeakable tragedies of the last year, Skyline College students continued to create art that was integral to who they are. On May 1st the Skyline College Art Gallery opened an online exhibition of students’ artwork in various media of visual arts; including ceramics and sculpture, digital art, drawing, mixed media, painting, and photography. The exhibition honors those student artists who made the choice to continue to create in the midst of a global pandemic intensified by political divide and economic disparity; and bravely shared their personal work with the world.
