Student Art Exhibit Just a Bunch of Blank Canvases
An exhibit at the Schick Art Gallery that opened last week is already turning heads. The exhibit—which shows off senior art students’ midterm projects—consists of eight blank canvases from four different students across campus.
Commenting on the exhibit, one sophomore student said, “I really have seen nothing like this. I just think it’s so powerful.” The student continued, saying, “The blankness of the canvases just so perfectly conveys the existential dread that plagues every college student across the nation. I mean, I wouldn’t have known what to paint, either, but I don’t think I would have been brave enough to actually leave the canvas blank.”
One of the seniors in the show, whose blank canvases were significantly bigger than the other students’, said, “It took me forever to come up with this idea, but I think it ended up really paying off.” She went on to say, “Everybody keeps saying that a five year-old could have done this, but I don’t think that’s true. Would a five year-old have left the canvas blank? I don’t think so. They would have finger painted all over it.”
Another senior admitted, “I really just can’t paint. I have no idea what I’m doing in this major.”
The exhibit will be open at the Schick throughout the next couple of weeks.
