NSU PVA’s Exhibit “Decade”

NSU’s department of performing and visual arts has launched its 10 year anniversary exhibit: DECADE, in PVA Gallery 217. The exhibit includes pieces compiled from alumni, former visiting artists from the gallery and all current students, faculty and instructors. As those involved with the department have spread out geographically over time, the pieces come from all around the country.

“Anybody who’s interested in the arts and learning more about what kind of arts programs we have here at NSU and anyone who’s interested in celebrating the arts here at NSU [should come to see the exhibit],” said Tennille Shuster, associate professor of art and design for the department of performing and visual arts. “It’s just a great opportunity to [celebrate] another milestone anniversary at this university.”

The exhibit also features a community wall— at all of the events, a “maker’s station” will be set up with paper, canvases and art supplies so that members of the community and NSU can feel like they are also part of the exhibit. As their works are completed, they can put them onto the community wall so that the exhibit grows just as the department of performing and visual arts has.

On Friday, Nov. 2, from 5-7 p.m. in Gallery 217, the department will hold a free reception to celebrate the event. Afterwards, attendees are encouraged to visit “Dance Works,” a performance by NSU dance students, in the Performance Theatre at 7:30 p.m., on Nov. 2 and 3. General admission is $15, and for students the price is $7.

“It’s our 10 year anniversary, so it’s going to be really exciting. I think [attendees] would be really surprised about how much dance is going on at NSU. We have quite a few students, probably about 30 or more, that are involved that have been working really hard,” explained Elana Lanczi, associate professor of dance in the department of performing and visual arts. “We always have a great show, and it’s different every year, so they should come and support.”

DECADE will close on Nov. 9. For more information about the exhibit, visit cahss.nova.edu/departments/pva/perf-exhib.html, and to learn more about Dance Works or to buy tickets, go to cahss.nova.edu/departments/pva/.
