Philadelphia, PA – Moore College of Art & Design invites you to its Annual Alumni Exhibition, June 3 – August 19, 2017, at The Galleries at Moore. The opening reception is Saturday, June 3, 5:30 – 8 pm, and it is FREE and open to the public.

Featuring recent works by Moore alumni, the selections on view in this year’s exhibition represent many degree programs including Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Illustration, Photography & Digital Arts and Textile Design, among others. Showcasing a wide variety of mediums and skill sets, this presentation includes over twenty-five artworks that, together, provoke contemplation of a dystopian future. Though some works document reality, others are the result of imaginative abstraction and creative vision where people, animals and objects become mysterious creatures in their own landscapes.

Curated by Robert Chaney, Director of Curatorial Affairs, ICA Philadelphia and Tory Savery, Founding Director, Savery Gallery, Philadelphia.
