When Nov 7 - Nov 14

Each year, students in Moore's MFA program exhibit work that has grown out of their first year with influences drawn from their personal research and experience moving through the program’s curriculum. Courses in material research have exposed them to a wide range of making, practical classes have taken them into the city’s cultural offerings and opened up how artists organize, and seminars in art history and ethics have posed questions and provided context for their explorations moving forward.

From November 7 – November 14, The Galleries presents the work of Ann Sirianni. Sirianni is a second-year MFA student in the Socially Engaged Studio Art program. She is an environmentally-minded artist, who is particularly interested in reusing and repurposing non-recyclable, single-use plastics into pieces of art that highlight the consequences of these materials on our planet and their use in our society. Prior to Moore, Ann was a painter, as well as a graphic designer and art director in New York City and Philadelphia. Recently, her practice has focused on sculpture and experimentation with post-consumer plastic.
