  • Shaw, Ali (2016)
    For as long as I can remember, whenever I gazed into the mirror I would be overcome with shame. My nose was too big, eyes too small, or gut too large. Surely I must be a monster, for I am far too hideous to be deserving ...
  • Wang, Alexandria (2016)
    As a child, my mother always took me to department stores for shopping. I found the mannequins in the window display fascinating. For me, they were like actual human beings, only prettier. Window designers dress the ...
  • Newman, Natalie (2017)
    I believe in the potential of art and other transcendent experiences to inspire growth in the way we treat each other, and the way we treat the earth. By “transcendent experience,” I mean anything that induces heightened ...

  • Blanco, Holden (2017)
    I’ve never been very good at drawing or painting. I always used to try to draw pictures of my family and friends, or my favorite fantasy movie characters. My pictures never came out exactly the way I wanted until I discovered ...
  • Méndez Alba, Jennifer (2017)
    Memories are strongly linked to places, and homes represent a refuge for most. I’ve spent part of every year in the Dominican Republic. My family home there has served as a protective and peaceful place set apart from where ...

    Montinola, Juliana (2017)
    Hailing from Manila, Philippines, I am no stranger to dense, chaotic environments wrought with overpopulation and poor air quality. With little access to green spaces, I became drawn to plants. I was fascinated by their ...
  • Wen, Connie (2017)
    Art is something that I have always loved from the bottom of my heart. It is a way for me to communicate stories and ideas; it is a way for me to keep myself awake during classes; it is a way for me to understand the world. ...

    Larsen, Cordelia (2017)
    Haitian Vodou has long been stigmatized and tainted, warped by Western projections that connect the religion to witchcraft and death. Historically, Vodou, a syncretic religion practiced chiefly in Haiti and the Haitian ...
  • Nguyen, Chau (2017)
    I paint messy. I paint when I am tired, agitated, relaxed, miserable, in despair. I paint utterly unprepared. The only things governing my brushstrokes, then, are fragments of my memory and the canvas before me. I paint ...
  • Fawcett, Elizabeth (2015)

    What would happen if every human on earth suddenly fell into pieces? My work aims to explore the rebuilding process and relationships formed through recovering from such an event. Construction begins slowly, as only remnants ...
  • Garcia, Mar (2015)
    Of particular interest to me are transgressive identities—identities that transgress societal boundaries and definitions. In my life and in my work, I am acutely aware of the tension between my innate human desperation for ...
  • Ortiz, Angelica (2015)
    The idea of home has always been important to me. The three places that I consider home are East Palo Alto, California; San Ignacio, Mexico; and Haverford, Pennsylvania. Be it in a positive or negative light, these places ...
