Art and Relations Abroad

By Alicia Malik


The Daemen College Art Department is currently involved in an exciting international exchange. As part of the “Intersecting Currents” exhibit, a collection of student and faculty artwork is on display at the South China Institute of Technology. The exhibition will continue next year as Daemen hosts the showcasing of SCIT’s art as well as welcoming exchange students.

“Intersecting Currents” consists of pieces created by some of Daemen’s finest. Selection of student and faculty art began last year by professors who sought out the most inventive work. Creativity is a feature the exhibit highlights. The ability to portray expression is especially important because, internationally, the foundations of art are universal. Individuality and Daemen’s allowance of its academic integration will hopefully be an inspiration to these Chinese students.

Not only is the show a wonderful opportunity for up and coming artists' exposure, but also a beneficial experience for the future of Daemen. The students involved in the exchange will diversify the population and formulate lasting bonds overseas. For a week, professors are travelling to China to represent the school as well as jump-start connections with prospective students. It is a growing experience for the department collectively and individually, promoting talents internationally. In a year’s time, be sure check out the show and welcome our new artists from China.
