The World in Surround: Art from AAC’s Summer Camps

On View: September 9 - October 21, 2018

Jenkins Community Gallery

In connection with AAC’s summer exhibition Open World, campers, ages 4-10, explored the elements of art-making, as they visited the galleries and learned about the exhibitions on view. Campers then used the ideas and themes presented to make their own inspired works of art.

Like the exhibiting artists at AAC, campers created alternate worlds, worked large-scale, and made unique and immersive environments. Through art, they envisioned new spaces to inhabit. The landscapes and environments created were both 2 and 3-dimensional and took their visual cues from the world campers observe and those they choose to inhabit through their imaginations.

AAC offers summer camps to children and teens, ages 4-18, from June through August. This exhibition features the work of campers enrolled in our four sessions of the summer camp The World in Surround, and displays only a fraction of the imaginative artwork created by our campers throughout the summer.
