Form/Function: Artwork from AAC’s Summer Camps

On View: September 21 - October 6, 2019

Jenkins Community Gallery

In connection with AAC’s summer exhibitions, campers ages 5-10 explored the elements of artmaking as they visited the galleries and learned about the exhibitions on view. The students then used the ideas and themes presented to make their own engaging works of art.

Campers created works large and small inspired by the artwork they observed in the group exhibition Transitional Objects and in AAC resident artist Jen Noone’s solo show Sort of, Kind of, Almost. They also took inspiration from City of Threads, the large-scale installation created by artist Amanda Browder for AAC’s facade in June. Campers were encouraged to think about artmaking in new and thought-provoking ways with an emphasis on objects and their importance to people and communities. They responded by creating their works of art in both 2 and 3-dimensional forms.

AAC offer camps to children and teens, ages 5-18, during the summer months. This exhibition displays the work of campers, ages 5-10, who were enrolled in one of the four sessions of our Form/Function summer camp. The work on view represents a fraction of the imaginative artwork created by the hundreds of campers that participated in AAC’s camps from June through August of this year.


Opening Reception: September 29 / 2–4pm
