LaGuardia Community College Alumni Art Exhibition from May 14-22

Reception on May 20,2011

Admission-free and open to the public.

The Humanities Department of LaGuardia Community College is pleased to announce an Alumni Exhibition of graduates from the Fine Arts Program to be held at The Experimental Space at Reis Studios 43-01 22 Street, Long Island City Queens. The Exhibition will run from May 14 through May 22 with a reception for the artists on Friday, May 20 from 5-9 p.m.

Fine Arts graduates from LaGuardia are highly sought after as transfer students by the most
prestigious and competitive art programs in the country. Students in the Fine Arts Program
benefit from an internationally diverse student body and a faculty of working artists committed
to providing students with hands on experience in the foundations including life drawing, art
history, sculpture, painting, as well as analog and digital photography.

This exhibition represents a sample of artists who work in such diverse mediums as photography,
sculpture, multi-media installation, painting and video. The artists in this exhibition are recent
graduates from the School of Visual Arts, Yale University, The Art Institute of Chicago and
Hunter College, as well as other four year programs. The work in this exhibition represents not
just the cultural diversity of the student body but the excellence and ambition that these artists
bring to their diverse mediums. The exhibition will bring to the fore conceptual rigor, visceral
materiality and the narrative, all bound by artistic ambition and idiosyncratic desire.

Inquiries should be sent to: Michael Rodriguez, Chair/Humanities Department,
mirodriguez@lagcc.cuny.edu

The Experimental Space is located at Reis Studios, an international community of
established and emerging artists from 20 nations.
