The 2021 SUMMA Exhibition explores the quixotic, all that is deemed idealistic, starry-eyed and impractical. Working and creating under unusual circumstances, quixoticism has become a liberating vehicle for these artists to explore and sharpen their craft. This show encapsulates the multiple ways that these bright young artists have adapted, grown and investigated the undeniable cruciality of art and quixotic perspective in tumultuous times.
The virtual exhibition will present work from the 2021 graduating class as well as artist talks and more in celebration of their hard work and dedication over the past four years.
