The exhibition will feature the pivotal works of 37 emerging artists. Students will bring forth the best work of their college career. This will be a chance for art students to really showcase their talents in what will be an intense exploration of each individuals place within the art community .

"Within the ether, we have estranged from our common sense, combining fantasy with reality. Our explorations of the mundane are massive.
We've destroyed and we've created.
We've built installations, vicious creations of wood, metal, plastics.
We've painted landscapes, portraits, still life, frozen action.
We've drawn, erased, dissected, and skeletized forms and figures. We've shot, produced, acted, directed, planned and tracked.
We've edited, spliced, sliced, and arranged footage.
This show is by its nature epic- larger than any of us; larger than the universe, though human in scale. Art bridges the difference. Like all epics, it is not a journey across the stars but a journey across the soul. Enter now and let your mind dance. So begins the epic.
