April 6th through April 28th
Opening April 6th, 6-10pm || Closing April 20th 6-8pm

Throughout April, the Yards will be showcasing the work of three senior studio arts majors graduating from the University of Rochester in May. Each senior has the liberty to base her show on the topics and mediums of her choosing. Bri’s obsession with invasive thoughts and substances is made hauntingly apparent through the use of visual and audio materials that portray toxicity in all its forms. Through the marriage of string and painting, Jenny explores a comprehensive, self-caring, integrated approach to mental illness as it impacts her own life as well as those around her. Alex is analyzing how she handles the inevitability of change while being drawn to the comfortable and familiar. As change in inevitable, so is the growth achieved over time despite attachment. This show represents the hard work and dedication put forth by each of these artists as their academic career comes to a close and they confront the reality of what it means to be a professional artist in today’s society.

The Yards drink specials available at Cure until midnight!
