Reception: February 20, 2013
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
SCENARIO: 12:01am December 21st, 2012: Asteroid hits Pasadena, California; flattens everything in a 200-mile radius. Debris and dust consume the air, obstructing the sun from Earth causing most living things to perish. Armageddon has begun.
The Mayan date has passed, and we’ve survived. But what if it did happen? The Adelphi University Exhibitions Program presents ‘Post Apocalypse: The Aftermath’ featuring works of Adelphi art students inspired by theories and prophecies of how the world will end. Will the human race destroy itself with war or pollution? Or, will it be some tragic act of nature, widespread disease or super volcanoes? This exhibition, on view at the Performing Arts Center (AUPAC) Gallery (second floor) from January 29 through March 5, 2013, showcases the diverse interpretations on the aftermath of the apocalypse. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, February 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The exhibition will feature the works of Adelphi’s emerging artists pursuing their studies in a variety of media, from ceramics and mixed media to paintings and printmaking. Each work will be presented on 12 by 12 inch panels, where the artists will express their visions of the December 21st apocalypse and its end result.
