Charged with thetask of incorporating the actual walls of the gallery into their work of art,each artist will utilize their allocated space to execute their work.

“I wanted the students to conceptualize a subject meaningful to them,” said Maggy Cuesta, dean of visual arts at NWSA. “When we first met to brainstorm about the project, they all displayed strong feelings about different and unique topics – issues that resonate in some passionate way with each one of them. The operative word was “emotions” and the challenge – how to use bare structural space to illustrate this concept in a meaningful way in order to shape their work and propel their ideas.”

Walls of Artseen will be on display from December 6 – December 9 at Artseen Gallery. 2215 NW 2nd Avenue, Wynwood. The exhibition is free and open to the Public.

Participating college students Kayla Delacerda, Junli Kato, Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo, Rafael Domenech, Stefanie Lopez, and Jeffrey Noble were selected by Dean Cuesta based on their work, dedication and ability to conceptualize and deliver their work. The artworks, which are in their embryonic stage at the moment, will be comprised of painting, digital media, installation, sculpture and found objects.
