Council for the Arts

The Council for the Arts is a group of volunteers from the College and the surrounding communities that foster and encourage an appreciation and enjoyment of the fine and performing arts. The council's ultimate goal is to develop a lasting love for the arts in SJC students and in the larger community, which will encourage their active involvement either as participants or as informed spectators.

Semester Art Shows

ROPE:

A solo exhibition of works by Tomo Mori

Sept. 11 to Oct. 22, 2019

Alumni Room Gallery, Tuohy Hall

In an emotional reaction to the rise of hate crimes after the 2016 election, an installation/sculpture series representative of  human connections. Tomo Mori chooses ropes as a symbol, using discarded fabrics as the material and weaving them by hand, as they are universal and ancient. They belong to all cultures, and no one exclusively owns them.

Two site-specific installations 15 feet wide x 5-7 feet high and several mid-size works.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays, 6-8 p.m., and Saturdays, 1-3 p.m.
