Open House at C. Barton McCann School of Art

April 28th and 29th 1-4pm

Featured Exhibition:
The JV Re-Creation Project is a creative performance designed to celebrate the arts and encourage environmentally sustainable practices. For this project, students and faculty members from the campuses of the Juniata Valley School District and Juniata College came together in the spring of 2012 to explore local sources and personal gifts. These sources and gifts informed the participants’  re-creations in the form of sculpture, poetry, dance, film, vocal and percussive performance, photography, storytelling and fashion.  Participants performed in early April on both the high school and the college campuses, promoting a celebration of cultures, introspection, and service. In addition to highlighting our local farming and hunting cultures, the Re-Creation Project 2012 expanded the audience’s cultural experience by featuring the music, stories and dress of The Gambia, West Africa. All proceeds supported the Juniata College club, Power Up Gambia, organized to raise funds to purchase solar panels and technical training for Gambian hospitals without electricity. All in all, the JV Re-Creation Project served to enrich participants and audiences alike.

Designers:
Kitana Downs and Anna Sajeski
