IRWIN 2020: Collective Solitude, the 34th Annual Irwin Scholarship Award Virtual Exhibition Opening Virtual Party
The Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery is excited to introduce “IRWIN 2020: Collective Solitude”, The 34th Annual Irwin Scholarship Award Exhibition. The Exhibition takes place beginning Wednesday, June 3rd through Tuesday, June 30th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm showcasing the works of a select group of UC Santa Cruz’s most promising young Artists.
The thirteen featured Artists include:
• Veriche Blackwell
• Edgar Cruz
• Natalie Del Castillo
• Angel Gonzales
• Jocelyn Lee
• Emma McWaid
• Aaron Martinez
• Chloe Murr
• Anastasia Oleson
• Dominic Ramirez
• Rodrigo Ramos
• Morgan Tomfohr
• Joshua Zupan
With an exceptional talent pool as the framework, the outstanding works of each of these individuals speak to this extraordinary period in history characterized by tremendous isolation and yet also incredible communal action. Their art addresses the many effects that distance has on individual, group, community, and worldwide levels.
With confidence that such great constraints generate new and creative ideas, “IRWIN 2020: Collective Solitude” aims to explore our present, estranged world where everyone is experiencing some form of loss and separation while working diligently and finding unique means to come together and support one another.
