Art Student Spotlight: Open to all majors

By Uriel Gonzalez

It fascinates people, inspires people, adds zest to life itself and it keeps people sane.

It is in human nature. It is creation. It is art.

Art is fluid; it comes in all forms, whether it be a drawing, a sculpture or even a video game, and you have the opportunity to showcase yours for all students to see.

“We want to showcase the talents and abilities that our students on campus are capable of,” said Arianne Coleto, the art program assistant for Associated Students, Inc.

ASI’s Art Student Spotlight contest gives all students, regardless of major, the opportunity to have their artwork featured at the Bronco Student Center’s art gallery for the entirety of winter quarter 2018.

Any and all types of artists are encouraged to submit their work.

Their art gallery nicely accommodates all kinds of art, with a spacious glass display case for any type of 3-D art and sculptures.

A giant curved wall perfect for framing illustrations, photography and poetry and a monitor specifically for displaying film projects or original video games are also all available to fill.

Even if you are an architecture or engineering student who wants to display some functional art, ASI’s art department has emphasized a want for interdisciplinary art; this means that they will consider anything that comes their way for potential display.

“We meet so many talented and artistic students who are not necessarily art majors, and they still have art they want to display,” said Art Program Assistant for ASI Philine Tran.

Rest assured, you don’t have to be an art student or submit traditional art to be considered.

This is the first quarter that this contest is being held, and they plan to make it a quarterly mainstay.

Despite this, the art gallery space near Ursa Major is far from empty. The art on display is from CPP’s own Coleto.

Coleto got involved by attending previous ASI art events like Art Attack, where she displayed her talents along with other student vendors.

Now she is running events like the Art Student Spotlight to enrich the art community on campus.

The ASI Student and Activities Program team will judge all the submitted artwork and decide what art will be displayed in the BSC.

To be considered, take a photo, scan it or take a video of your artwork and submit it digitally to asiactivities@cpp.edu with the title “Art Student Spotlight” before Oct. 27 at 6 p.m.

Artists who submit their work by the deadline will be notified if they made the cut to be featured in the gallery on Nov. 3.
