The Light Is Still On: The 23rd Thacher Art + Architecture Annual

 

Healing is a constant journey with no linear path. By celebrating the diverse lives and unique artistic approaches of the University of San Francisco’s student artists, the 23rd Thacher Annual reminds us that the light is still on, despite the many hardships present in the world.

The exhibition includes works by 40 junior and senior majors and minors from USF’s Department of Art + Architecture. Through varied media and themes of the environment, introspection, and connection, students assert their honest emotions and approaches to the healing process. The featured works offer opportunities for reflection, as well as avenues for restoring ourselves, our communities, and our globe.

The Light Is Still On: The 23rd Thacher Art + Architecture Annual is presented by USF’s undergraduate Art History & Museum Studies Thacher Practicum class led by Nell Herbert. Exhibited artworks were selected by jurors Alicia Escott, Barnali Ghosh, Aileen Mangan, and Jordán Sandoval.

     What does healing look like for you, and where are you in your journey?
