Twelve students from Pennsylvania College of Art & Design will be visually interpreting the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes” in an exhibition at the Community Room of King from April 1 – 25, with a reception on First Friday, April 1, 5 – 8 p.m.
The students are enrolled in the Media, Form, and Concept class taught by Davis Moss, PCA&D fine art faculty member. Moss said, “This brief story is rich in metaphor and poses so many questions regarding beauty, pretense, deception, illusion, vanity, power, and the willingness to accept a lie. This makes it a perfect vehicle to challenge students to give visual form to their interpretative ideas.”
The exhibitint students are: Edward Berkoski, a junior fine art major from Harrisburg, PA; Mikayla Brown, a senior photography major from Ridgewood, NJ; Maurice Butler, junior fine art major, Lancaster, PA; Katherine Cruz, fine art, Canaan, VT; Olivia DiFilippo, junior fine art, Wilmington, DE; Jezabeth Gonzalez, junior photography, Lancaster,PA; Taylor Hall, junior fine art, Middletown, PA; Samantha Hunsicker, junior fine art, Lebanon, PA; Maryn Martens, sophomore fine art, Mechanicsburg, PA; Thabani Ndlovu, junior fine art, Annville, PA; Karin Wengenroth, junior fine art, Stratford, CT; and Melodie Zielinski, junior fine art, Windsor, PA.
